Description


This is Johnson and Ward's 1865 map of England and Wales. The map covers both England and Wales in full from Scotland south to the English Channel and The Channel Islands, and from St. George’s Channel to the mouth of the Thames River, including the Isle of Man. The upper right hand quadrant features a list of counties in England and Wales, respectively. The lower left hand quadrant offers an inset of the Scilly Isles. During this time, both England and Wales were in the midst of the Industrial Revolution wherein much of the rural agricultural population relocated to urban centers. The map is color coded according to region and notes several towns, cities, rivers, and various other topographical details with relief shown by hachure. It features the fretwork style border common to Johnson’s atlas work from 1863 to 1869. Steel plate engraving prepared by A. J. Johnson for publication as plate nos. 76 and 77 in the 1865 edition of his New Illustrated Atlas.  This is the second edition of the Johnson’s Atlas to bear the Johnson and Ward imprint.
