Maps drawn and engraved by John Archer. From Thomas Dugdale & William Burnett's Curiosities of Great Britain. London, ca. 1845. Ca. 7 x 9. Steel engravings. Original outline color. Very good condition. Denver.

Thomas Dugdale was an antiquarian, who along with civil engineer William Burnett, issued a multi-volume work entitled Curiosities of Great Britain. Containing text, engraved views and maps of the counties of Great Britain, the Curiosities appeared in several editions beginning about 1840. The maps were prepared by John Archer, a skilled engraver who also produced maps for The British Magazine and The Colonial Church Atlas. The maps are typical of the precisely engraved maps of the period, with copious, accurate detail of towns, roads, and rail lines. The divisions of each county are indicated with outline color, so while the maps are somewhat utilitarian in appearance, they have a nice decorative appeal.
