Facsimile edition of volume first published by Cambridge University Press in 1925. (Besterman 1169). A well-known English cartographer, John Cary began as an engraver in London and turned to publishing and land surveying in 1783. His New and Correct English Atlas appeared in 1787, followed by county atlases. The New Universal Atlas, for which he is best known, first appeared in 1808. Fordham, rightfully considered one of the century's foremost experts in the history of cartography, meticulously describes 300 of Cary's works. This title has always been hard to find. Though once reprinted, all copies are uncommon.
