About

World map published in June 1783 by Stackhouse and engraved by S.J. Neele. It is a geographical map printed by engraving on a copper plate, coeval coloring, which depicts the entire earth's surface divided into two parts that correspond to the two hemispheres. The map is significant because it is complete with the routes relating to the travels of the English astronomer and navigator James Cook in the 18th century. Good condition, some cracks on the left side, beautiful non-coeval frame of cherrywood. Measures: With frame 93.8 x 54.5 cm - 36.9 x 21.4 inches, thickness 2 cm - 0.78 inches. Samuel John Neele (1758-1824) was an important British engraver and cartographer, known to have produced maps and portraits. He operated a print shop in London with his sons between 1782 and 1833. Trade engraver, with business in the strand, produced also illustrations and financial documents. He worked for prominent cartographers and publishers such as Faden, Laurie, Stackhouse, Thomson and others. He engraved maps for "Lake District Maps" by Crosthwaite (along with Ashby and Ellis), "New Map of Ireland, Civil and Ecclesiastical" Daniel August Beaufort in 1792, and for atlases such as the "New General Atlas" and "Atlas of Scotland" by Thomson in 1817, "Atlas Of England And Wales" by Robin in 1819 and "Geological Map of England and Wales" by Greenough.
