Pub Title: Cary's new universal atlas, containing distinct

the latest and best authorities extant. London: Printed for J. Cary, Engraver
and Map-seller, No. 181, near Norfolk Street, Strand, 1808.
Pub Reference: Phillips, 714; Fordham, J.C. John Cary,
p. 77-82; The map collector, 43, p. 40-47; National Maritime Museum. Catalog,
v. 3, no. 311.
Pub Note: The 1st ed., with a list of subscribers. Fordham
lists eds. of 1808, 1811 (reissue of 1808, no maps changes other than
the 1811 date appearing on some of the maps), 1819 (one third of the maps
amended), 1824 (maps unchanged from 1819 except for the date), 1828 (same
as 1824, except for date changes, with reissues in 1833, 1836 (Baskes),
and 1844). This is a fine atlas, one of the best of its period, and a
source for American mapmakers (Tanner directly copied the World and continental
maps for his New American Atlas). Fordham: (The maps) "are finely
engraved, with full details, showing especially the water-ways and roads,
and hill-shading, and are usually coloured. The work is very clear and
delicate and of a uniform character throughout." Maps are hand painted
in outline color and bound in half leather brown boards with "Cary's
Atlas. 1808" stamped in gilt on the new leather spine.
