The Small English Atlas being a New and Accurate Sett of Maps of all the Counties in England and Wales, published Robert Sayer John Bennett John Bowles and Carrington Bowles, [1775], decorative calligraphic title, preface (with index and table of explanation on the same page), map of England & Wales and a map of the rivers of England, and forty-eight (complete) uncoloured engraved maps with descriptive text below image, slight finger soiling and staining largely confined to margins, later endpapers, modern quarter morocco, 4to The third edition has no date on the title page but must have been issued sometime after 1774 when Robert Sayer joined John Bennett in partnership. It is probably this edition that was advertised in the Sayer and Bennett catalogue of 1775. The maps differ from the earlier editions in that the borders of the hundreds, wapentakes and some canals and roads have been added and the list of towns below the maps is now alphabetical. Not in Chubb but c.f. Chubb CXCII for 1749 edition. (1)
