'AN ACCURATE MAP of the COUNTY of NORFOLK, Divided into its HUNDREDS.' by E. Bowen c.1777-1781
An interesting and attractive late 18th century map of Norfolk which was produced by Emanuel Bowen and published in The Royal English Atlas (London: R. Sayer & J. Bennett, J. Bowles, C. Bowles; 1777-1781).
Emanuel Bowen (fl. 1714-1767) was among the most renowned and prolific map engravers of the 18th century. Along with Thomas Kitchin and his son, Thomas Bowen, he produced some of the finest maps and atlases of the period. His recognition was such that he was appointed Geographer to both George II of Great Britain and Louis XV of France. Despite his many achievements, however, he never enjoyed lasting financial success and died in great poverty.
