Thomas Dugdale was an antiquarian and responsible for this the ‘Curiosities of Great Britain’. The work was issued with two distinct sets of maps. The first utilised those maps from the George Cole and John Roper ‘British Atlas’ of 1810. This second series used a new set of maps engraved by Joshua Archer (1792-1863) which were derived from those of Cole and Roper. The publishers J. & F. Tallis had acquired the Cole and Roper plates and the Dugdale text by c.1835. In 1835 the plates were used to accompany Thomas Dugdale’s ‘Curiosities of Great Britain’. Provenance: private English collection. Beresiner (1983) pp. 88-90; Carroll (1996) no. 62; Chubb (1927) 465.
