Emanuel and Thomas Bowen’s ‘Atlas Anglicanus’ was first issued in parts of which only one known example survives. The first edition of the atlas was issued immediately the final part was issued in 1768. Emanuel Bowen (fl.1714 d.1767) was a very active engraver whose style is often noted by the extensive use of legends. Emanuel died following the issue of the fourth part and the work was continued by his son Thomas. However just before it was completed Thomas Kitchin would take control of it. A second edition was issued in 1777 followed by the ‘New Medium Atlas’ published by Carington Bowles in 1785 from which this map is found. Hodson 256.
