Perhaps the most successful of the various publishers of this book was Thomas Kelly and he employed Alexander Findlay as the engraver of the series of world maps which were included. Findlay made these maps distinctive by including a decorative border at a time when the practice was going out of fashion. This map of the World is a perfect example of Findlay's style. The clarity of his engraving is excellent no matter whether it be settlements, rivers or mountains and the map packs in a lot of detail. The most obvious mistake from a modern perspctive is the joining of Grenlnd to the Canadian Arctic and the absence of Antarctica. The map measures 13" by 8.5", has outline hand colouring, several folds (as issued) and is in very good condition. The map is guaranteed to be over 170 years old.
