by Wilkinson, Robert

Beautiful finely detailed antique map of Denmark c1794, with superb original hand-colour (evidenced by oxidation of the colour through to the rear of the map).

Original Denmark antique map, engraved by W. Harrison c1794 for Robert Wilkinson's General Atlas of the World. Robert Wilkinson (c1752-1825) flourished as a map-maker from 1785, and was known for the quality and decorativeness of his maps. He acquired the engraved plates from the estate of map publisher John Bowles, and Wilkinson achieved renown by updating and reissuing the plates for his General Atlas, which he re-issued in 1802 and 1809. 

The map is on good quality thick paper that is slightly age-discoloured with a little foxing. The map has a distinct platemark and good margins all round. Page size is 340 x 268mm (13 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches). Map to border measures 29 x 23cm (11 3/8 x 9 inches).
