Item:3526457917281720 Bowen Map - A Map of Somersetshire Emanuel Bowen was one of the most influential of English cartographers during the early to mid-1700's. However his popularity with publishers failed to provide him with a comfortable living and he ended his days in the poorhouse. His first published atlas 'Britannia Depicta' is also his best-known. He reduced the famous road atlas of John Ogilby to a smaller size and included a series of county maps. These strip road maps were extremely popular with travellers and the atlas went through many editions. This elegant map is one of the county ones from the first edition of 1720. It shows the county of Somerset in SW England with the Bristol Channel to the north. The cities of Bristol, Bath, Wells, Bridgewater and Taunton are the dominant settlements but such is the detail that even small villages have been included. There is a charming description of the county below the map and a decorative coat of arms near the title. The map measures 7" by 4.5", has hand colouring and is in good condition. The map is guaranteed to be over 280 years old. Shipping United States - Regular airmail - $5.00US. Tracked airmail (optional) is an additional US$12.00 for a total of US$17.00.
