A finely engraved and accurate 18th century map of Cheshire, by the renowned John Cary, 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 in earlier map making 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.
