Robert Miller was a publisher and bookseller who was responsible for just one cartographic production ‘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 lithographic county maps for the topographer Reuben Ramble’s ‘Travels through the Counties of England’ published by the firm of Darton & Clark as it was then known in 1843. Intended for children each county map is surrounded by historical and decorative depiction’s. This fine map of Surrey includes a vignette of horse racing. Chubb 517.
