MILLER, Robert

Surrey

London, 1819-[22]
75 x 110 mm., early wash colour, in good condition.
Robert Miller was a publisher and bookseller who was responsible for just one cartographic productions ‘Miller’s New Miniature Atlas’, 1821. Most believe the map’s first issue to be this work, however it is in fact as a set of cards by Thomas Crabb in 1819. The atlas was later issued as ‘Darton’s New Miniature Atlas’ in 1822 and again in 1825. But arguably its most famous incarnation is as the county maps for Reuben Ramble’s ‘Travels through the Counties of England’ published by the firm of Darton & Clark as it was then known in 1844. For these issues they were accompanied by ornate border vignettes. Chubb 341.
