Copper engraving, later hand colouring. Overall size in off white fully conservation grade mount and back with decorative v groove: 34ms x 41.1cms. Image size : 190mm.x 253mm. Title in decorative cartouche, scale of distance and key entitled 'remarks' denoting borough and market towns, rectories and vicarages, fairs etc. Very good condition apart from a repaired tear under mount on left side, just touching neatline, not noticeable; little dustiness bottom blank. Uncommon. Joseph Ellis was a highly skilled engraver and in the 1760s he made a very fine set of county maps which were published as 'Ellis's English Atlas'. These maps were evidently based upon Thomas Kitchin's maps from the London Magazine, displaying more or less the same information. However the cartouche on the Ellis maps are significantly more decorative showing a small scene containing a rock, monument or building around the title. Joseph Ellis was bequeathed all the tools of mapmaker Richard William Seale to whom he was apprenticed. He also became William Palmer's brother-in-law.
