Emanuel and Thomas Bowen’s ‘Atlas Anglicanus’ was first issued in parts of which only one known example survives. The first edition of the atlas was issued immediately the final part was issued in 1768. Emanuel Bowen (fl.1714 d.1767) was a very active engraver whose style is often noted by the extensive use of legends. Emanuel died following the issue of the fourth part and the work was continued by his son Thomas. However just before it was completed Thomas Kitchin would take control of it. For the first edition of the book Thomas Kitchin began applying his imprint to the plates and examples can be found with some of the plates in the first state. This is just such an example of Surrey. The number ‘9’ upper right indicates the parts issue it appeared in. Very rare. Hodson 254.
