The ‘Atlas Anglicanus’ was first issued in parts which is exceedingly rare and then as an atlas in 1767 republished in 1777. Emanuel Bowen (fl.1714 d.1767) was a very active engraver whose style is often noted by the extensive use of legends. Emanuel died during the issue of the parts and the work was continued by his son Thomas. However before it was completed Thomas Kitchin would take control of it. This example is in its more usual second state. Hodson 254.
