Sweden, Norway & Denmark. Antique Map. Walker, SDUK c1844

by Walker, J. & C.

John Walker, Alexander Walker and Charles Walker were collectively known as J. & C. Walker. Engravers, draughtsmen and publishers, they flourished in London from 1820-1895.  Over this period they worked out of 47 Bernard St, Russell Square (1830-6), 3 Burleigh St, Strand (1837-40), 9 Castle St, Holborn (1841-7), and 37 Castle St, Holborn (1848-75). 
They published their “Royal Atlas” with several reissues, and engraved many maps and charts for the British Admiralty, but are probably best known for their work in conjunction with the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (SDUK). SDUK worked from 1829-32 with Baldwin and Cradock of 47 Paternoster Row (later Baldwin, Cradock and Joy); in 1844 with Chapman and Hall; Chas Knight & Co from 1844-52 (first at 22 Ludgate St, and then at 90 Fleet Street); G. Cox 1852-3; and Stanford 1852-1870.

This map is in fair condition, with slight foxing to be expected with the age of the map.
