BACKGROUND INFORMATION: John Cary’s New and Correct English Atlas first appeared in 1787 but by 1809 the plates had been used so worn that new, nearly identical, plates needed to be engraved. These were used upto a final issue in 1843. In 1844 George Cruchley purchased G. and C. Cary's stock of printing plates, and set about changing the titles and imprints to continue their usage. Whereas the Carys had used intaglio printing, Cruchley turned to the fast growing method of printing by lithographic transfer, which offered greater flexibility in making quick changes. The atlas placed great stress upon the inclusion of railways and stations, as to be seen to be keeping pace with the fast growing national railway network was a marketing necessity. In 1877, Gall and Inglis, the Edinburgh cartographers, bought out Cruchley’s maps and produced them under his name, then under their own. Therefore the 1875 edition was the final Cruchley publication from the old Cary plates. Please explore my ebay shop for more antique prints.
