This series of miniature maps were drawn it is believed by Aristide Michel Perrot (1793-1879). They accompanied a topographical description of Great Britain by George Bernard Depping (1784-1853). He was a naturalised Frenchman who was born in Münster, Germany in 1784. He became a professor of German and a member of the French Royal Society of Antiquaries. Perrot was a geographer who produced several works related to this field. The maps appear to be the work of the Parisian engraver Adrien Migneret (1786-1840). Each is adorned with what appears to be unrelated imagery. A very nice example of the first edition. Provenance: Clive A. Burden Ltd. 2011; private English collection. Carroll (1996) no. 83; not in Chubb; Tooley (1999-2004).
