2 Darton, William, Jr. Map of Spain & Portugal (Framed and Matted)
London Walkers Geography 1802 First Printing Non-Book Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Map by William Darton, Jr. from Atlas to Walker's Geography. London: Vernor and Hood, etc., 1802. Engraved. Original outline color. William Darton, Sr. began his map-making business in 1787 in London. His cartographic publishing house would last, in various manifestations, until the 1860s. William Darton, Jr. joined his father late in the eighteenth century and this is a map engraved by him for Walker's Geography. While not large (c. 8.5" x 7.5"), the maps contain an impressive amount of detail, which is quite carefully presented. The information used was the best available in London at the beginning of the nineteenth century, meaning the best in the world, so this map is not only attractive, but provides an excellent cartographic picture of Spain and Portugal at the beginning of the 19th century.. NEAR FINE, framed and matted. . Engraving. 10" x 9". 1 pp 
Price: 200.00 USD
