SKU: jcnc/derb/005

A finely engraved and accurate 18th century John Cary map of Derbyshire which appeared in his New & Correct English Atlas (London: 1787/1788). An original page of text relating to the county is included with this purchase.

First published in 1787/88, Cary's New & Correct English Atlas was the most revolutionary county atlas ever printed. The quaintness and charm of earlier maps was replaced with a scientific rationality that emphasised detail, clarity and accuracy. Cary set a standard thereafter which other Cartographers were to follow most notably the Ordnance Survey.
