B.R. Davies J. Cassell    Cassell's British Atlas 1865 (c1862)
£24
42 x 30.5cm


Benjamin Rees Davies first drew this map for the Weekly Dispatch newspaper as part of a series published between 1857 and 1863. The maps were then re-issued in a complete work as The Dispatch Atlas in 1863, before the plates were acquired by the firm of Cassell, Petter and Galpin. They re-issued them as Cassell's Complete Atlas in 1863 and again in 1865, with the addition of statistical information, in Cassell's British Atlas, and in Cassell's Topographical Guides to individual counties. Old folds to this example suggest it is from the guide to Surrey. All editions of the maps were by lithographic transfer. Repaired tear impinging c5.5cms inside the right-hand border, and other minor repairs to marginal nicks not impinging the printed area.
