Although first published in 1829 the maps for the Teesdale atlas were in fact first issued in Robert Rowe’s ‘English Atlas’ published in 1816 of which only two examples survive. Rowe (c.1775-1843) is recorded as an engraver and it is possible that he was responsible for these plates. It was Henry Teesdale (fl.1828-45) however who made the most use of them with the ‘New British Atlas’ published from 1830 through 1842. This example of Yorkshire is the largest map in the atlas due to the size of the county. Provenance: Doreen Green 2001. Beresiner pp. 190 & 227-9; Carroll 71; Chubb 410.
