It was an unusual feature of his “Britannia Depicta” atlas that the maps were engraved on both sides of each page. The maps can be double glazed, thus the customer has a choice of two maps. The publisher of the Atlas was a John Owen, hence the term “Owen and Bowen” to describe maps from the work. The appreciation rate of this series of maps over the past 20 years has been remarkable” (J.Booth: Looking at old maps). Each map has a nice finely engraved coat of arms, and there is text with details of the county, size, climate, industry & commerce. Well and pleasing later professional colouring (on both sides).
