R. Butters    New English Atlas 1803/1804
8.5 x 12cm

An Atlas of England/The Picture of England Illustrated. These small maps were first issued in 1803 as An Atlas of England. There was a subsequent re-issue the following year in The Picture of England Illustrated, by William Green. Butters' maps are most unusual in being orientated so that their tiltles and place names read from east to west. In the case of Bedfordshire this means that north is at the bottom rather than the top of the map. The maps are quite rare. Original colour.
