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 as here. The second series used a new set of maps engraved by Joshua Archer (1792-1863). The publishers J. & F. Tallis had acquired the Cole and Roper plates and the Dugdale text by c.1835. Provenance: private English collection. Beresiner (1983) pp. 88-90; Carroll (1996) no. 62; Chubb (1927) 465.
