J. Wilkes S.M. Neele    Encyclopaedia Londinensis 1801
£30
19 x 23.5cm


Over the first decades of the 19th century, Samuel Neele engraved a number of maps for the Encyclopaedia Londinensis which was published serially. A number of these maps state specifically in the imprint that they were engraved for the Encyclopaedia. The lower margin of this example of the Bedfordshire map has been trimmed, resulting in the loss of the imprint. Comparison with another Bedfordshire example reveals that it did not carry an attribution to the Enclyclopaedia, but did bear the name of the publisher J. Wilkes, and the date 1801. An unprepossessing little map but not commonly found - one for the collector.

£20
19.5 x 25cm
