This is an attractive example of S. A. Mitchell's 1849 map of England. It covers all of England from Northumberland in the north to Cornwall in the south. Two insets in the upper left and right quadrants depict the environs of Liverpool and London, respectively. A small inset of the Scilly Islands is featured in the lower left quadrant. Political and topographical features are noted and color coded with elevation rendered by hachure. During this time, both England and Wales were in the midst of the Industrial Revolution, wheremuch of the rural agricultural population was relocating to urban centers. The whole is engraved and colored in Mitchell's distinctive style with green border work and vivid pastels. Mitchell published this chart in his atlas from 1846 to the late 1850s before discontinuing the series and selling his map plates to DeSilver. This map was issued in the 1849 edition of the New Universal Atlas. It was the last edition of that atlas to be published by Mitchell prior to selling the plates and rights to the atlas to Thomas Cowperthwait in 1850.
