From ‘Cary’s New and Correct English Atlas’. John Cary (c.1754-1835) was one of the most successful map and globe publishers of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The first of his important atlas contributions is the ‘New and Correct English Atlas’ first published in 1787. Cary was the first map maker to use Greenwich as the meridian. The clarity of his style sets him apart from the competition. The plates proved so popular that they had to be replaced with a fresh series which was published in 1809. Refer Hodson no. 285.
