From the ‘Atlas Anglicanus’. First issued in parts which is exceedingly rare and then as the first edition of the ‘Atlas Anglicanus’ in 1767 re-published in 1777. It was published as the ‘New Medium Atlas’ by Carington Bowles in 1785 bearing different imprints. A unique example survives of the last edition jointly published by Bowles and Carver c.1793. Emanuel Bowen (fl.1714 d.1767) was a very active engraver whose style is often noted by the extensive use of legends. Emanuel died during the issue of the parts and the work was continued by his son Thomas. However before it was completed Thomas Kitchin would take control of it. This example is in its first state. Booth pp. 86-7; Hodson 254.
