England & Wales Thomas Kitchin 1773-GALL-S-15-4

An unusual and important atlas including maps of Britain and British possessions in North America by Thomas Kitchin 1719-1784. There is only one county map, Sheet 7    Gloucestershire and a map of only Southern Ireland Sheet 12. The cartography is excellent with colour being used to highlight boundaries. Sheet 42 South Scotland is very much out of place. The inclusion of Sheet Egypt Sheet 40 shows its importance in the British Empire. There are a number of very large maps of Asia, India, Russia and Europe. They contain much information. A number of maps have decorative cartouches.
