Provenance: The Dispatch Atlas, published at the “Weekly Dispatch” office, London, 1863. The Dispatch Atlas featured detailed steel plate engraved maps of the UK and the rest of the World, showing political divisions, railways, theatres of war, town/city plans and charts, usually with single colour outline hand colouring. Maps were largely contributed by Edward Weller, John Dower and to a lesser extent, B R Davies. Edward Weller was a London-based engraver, cartographer and publisher. These maps were then compiled into’The Dispatch Atlas. Weller usually engraved the maps himself, but also worked partnership with John Dower and B R Davies, among others. The picture included here is of the actual print for sale, not a stock or library picture. The vast majority of prints we sell are recovered from old, disbound books, atlases and magazines. Virtually all antiquarian maps and prints are subject to some normal aging due to use and time which is not obtrusive unless otherwise stated. We endeavour to describe any faults but please look at the picture. This is an authentic print, published at the date stated above. It is not a modern copy.
