In 1833-34 James Bell published ‘A New and Comprehensive Gazetteer’ in parts. Much of its source material was drawn from Samuel Lewis’ ‘Topographical Dictionary of England’. In 1839 Lewis managed to obtain an injunction against Bell. The maps engraved for the work were later retained by Archibald Fullarton & Co. who utilised them in the ‘Parliamentary Gazetteer’ with new text, first issued in 1840. The Fullarton maps each contain a decorative vignette, these later issues bear railways. The plates were constantly updated as the rapidly expanding railway network grew. The maps are filed alphabetically except for Hampshire which is filed under its alternative name Southampton. Beresiner (1983) p. 102; Carroll (1996) 99; refer Chubb (1927) 510.
