John and Charles Walker were engravers and publishers, and were responsible for several atlases, including those published by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge. In 1837 they produced the 42 county maps on which this work is based. Hobson used maps printed from the Walkers' lithographic plates, and added features relevant to fox-hunting: the range of each hunt is outlined in watercolour, and the places of the meets are indicated by black spots.
