WALLIS, James, fl.1810-1825 :
WALLIS'S NEW POCKET EDITION OF THE ENGLISH COUNTIES OR TRAVELLERS COMPANION IN WHICH ARE CAREFULLY LAID DOWN ALL THE DIRECT & CROSS ROADS, CITIES, TOWNES, VILLAGES, PARKS ...
London : J. Wallis, [ca.1814]. First edition : the second state, with the addition of plate numbers to Wallis's delightfully engraved sequence of maps. A very pretty pocket atlas of the English counties, generally dated to 1810, although surely post-dating Wallis's larger county atlas of that year and probably datable to about 1812, with the present issue (distinguished by the addition of plate numbers) probably dating from about 1814. Pott 4to (146 x 109mm). Engraved title-page, contents page, general map of England and Wales, forty-two county maps (one - Yorkshire - double-page), two regional maps of North and South Wales, and a smaller map of the Isle of Wight - all with original hand colour. Original publisher's half sheep, with the publisher's leather label on upper board; some minor wear and marking, with slight splitting; a little shaken and slightly loose; short split to double-page map; one map (Wiltshire) deftly attached or re-attached by two old metal pins, and possibly supplied from another copy, but overall an attractive example of a charming pocket companion. Contemporary (1818) ownership inscription of the untraced Hannah Wessely or Wepely, with the additional message "Forget me Not".
