Engraved area approx: 7.75" x 11.5" (195mm x 290mm) BOWEN, THOMAS (d. 1790), engraver of charts, was the son of Emanuel Bowen, map engraver to George II and Louis XV, who published a 'Complete Atlas of Geography,' with good maps, 1744-7; an 'English Atlas, with a new set of maps,' 1745(?); a 'Complete Atlas … in sixty-eight Maps,' 1752; 'Atlas Minimus; or a new set of Pocket Maps,' 1758, 24mo; and a series of separate maps of the English counties, of Germany, Asia Minor, and Persia, between 1736 and 1776, of which Gough speaks with little approval. Thomas Bowen engraved the maps and charts of the West Indies, published by the direction of the government from the surveys of Captain James Speer; maps of the country twenty miles round London and of the road between London and St. David's, about 1750; a 'New Projection of the Eastern and Western Hemispheres of the Earth,' 1776; and an 'Accurate Map of the Russian Empire in Europe and Asia,' 1778. He contributed to Taylor and Skinner's 'Survey and Maps of the Roads of North Britain' in 1776. He died at an advanced age in Clerkenwell workhouse early in 1790. #eastindies#rare#map#mapmakers#engraved#mapoftheday#collectable#oldmap#cartography#handcolored#maplover
Every southern summer road trip should include a visit to The Little Big Store in Raymond, MS. Even if record stores aren't "your thing", it's hard to pass up all the music memorabilia found in the rooms of the old Raymond Train Depot. Every time I thought I had seen it all I would discover another room filled with something I didn't expect- the time I spent there with my friends flipping through old rolling stone magazines and staring at larger than life size Frank Sinatra posters will always be one of my favorite memories.
Saw Ohn Nyum - Princess of Burma 1960's framed print (unglazed) by Sir Gerald Kelly.
You may remember about a month ago I said I had bought this for my best friend's birthday as she absolutely loved mine. Well turns out...she loves it but her other half is...well lets just say...not so smitten with it. So she now has a cash birthday gift and I now have this beaut to sell. If I didn't already have one in my bedroom I would be keeping this.
I have not retouched, brightened or altered the photos taken with my mobile (check previous pics for condition and colour) in any way so apart from natural light this is as close to exactly how it looks. Personally I think the frame is divine and very '60s. Condition as you can see is very good for it's years. I note there are about 4-5 on Ebay at the moment some for as much as £150. I have even seen this sell for £250. Anyhow in MY opinion this has the nicest frame of any available at the moment and price wise I think I am asking a very fair price and nothing as daft as the above.
Approx dims are 26.5 x 21.5 x 0.5 inches.
Only available to UK people - sorry.
DM me if interested and would like more info on print and price. This will go in my shop if unsold on IG.
