About this Item

John Cary (1754-1835) was an 18th century English cartographer who worked as an engraver in London before starting his own company in the Strand in 1783. In 1878 he published The New and Correct English Atlas, setting a standard of quality and authority for maps, globes and works of reference produced in England. Although not as elaborately decorated as other contemporary mapmakers designs, Cary’s maps were celebrated for their clarity and detail. Cary often worked in partnership with his brother William Cary, a scientific instrument maker (selling as J. & W. Cary). In 1794 John Cary was commissioned by the Postmaster General to survey the roads in England, and in 1798 he published Cary’s New Itinerary, mapping the major roads in England and Wales. This suberb, hand-colored engraving “Cheshire” illustrates John Cary’s attention to detail and fine mapmaking skills. Measuring 9.75” x 12.25”, this engraving is in good condition, with evidence of verso page text and previous repair to the central crease. The name Cheshire was first derived from the name Chester and recorded in 980 meaning "the shire of the city of legions". Major cities located within the County of Cheshire are noted on this map including Warrington, along the River Mersey, Chester, Nantwich, Betley and Northwich. Also illustrated on this map is Liverpool to the northwest and the names of the surrounding shires. Bookseller Inventory # dj1503e
