£25

Lett's Popular County Atlas has its roots in Walkers British Atlas, first published in 1835.

The maps inderwent various modifications and additions, and were also overprinted to produce colours in green, yellow, pink, blue and red. There was a further edition of the atlas in 1887, with some further changes to the maps, and, although still under the Letts branding, now published by Mason & Payne who had taken over the Letts business. Maps were also sold singly, dissected on linen, and folding into card covers, as with this example, which dates from c1884. Slight wear and a few spots.
