Bowles s Reduced Map of Dorsetshire

Engraved by Thomas Kitchin. from Bowles’s Pocket Atlas c.1778.  7″ x 8 7/8″.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Rare. From a series first issued in 1769 noteworthy for the fact that all the maps were produced to the same scale – something unique in county atlases at the time and, potentially, of great use to its target market: the burgeoning numbers of travellers, both commercial and social. It did not, however, succeed. This untouched example shows the road network very clearly and gives distances from London.
