J. Pigot    Untitled Set of County Maps c1829/30
£30
22x 36cm


James Pigot & Co's county maps were issued in their British Atlas (from c1829), in several of their national and local business directories (from 1826 for some of the "home counties", at least), and singly in folding form as travelling maps. They were amongst the first maps to be printed from steel instead of copper plates, allowing more accurate fine detail and less wear to the plates over time. Atlas and directories went through several editions up to around 1857, later editions from 1846 being re-named Slater's New British Atlas, with imprints changed accordingly. This copy is the first state of the Bedfordshire map as issued in an untitled set of maps around 1829/30, and precedes the atlas proper (see Chambers "Printed Maps and Town Plans of Bedfordshire 1576-1900", entry 85 (i). Original outline colour. A little toning.

35.5 x 22.5cm


Pigot and Co. specialised in the publication of local and national business directories which included county maps. These same maps were also issued in atlas and gazetteer format. Pigot's British Atlas was first published in 1829, and ran to several later editions, undergoing a name change to Slater's New British Atlas from about 1846 (Isaac Slater having joined the firm as a partner in 1839). Railways were added to the maps as the network expanded, and railway evidence suggests a date of c1838-42 for this example.
