Engraving  
A view of the city, with a description and a key listing buildings and places of interest underneath.
The brothers Samuel and Nathaniel Buck were born in Richmond, North Yorkshire, around the end of the 17th century. Both were artists and engravers, and together they produced the first comprehensive series of English and Welsh town prospects. Their work began in 1728 with views of Chester, Derby, Lancaster, Liverpool, Manchester and Preston. Individual prints were sold in the locality to raise sufficient funds to continue to the next town. For convenience and economy the brothers felt it necessary to base themselves in London where they would return in autumn laden with drawings for engraving. The work was completed in 1749, twenty one years after they started, an extraordinary achievement: in total eighty nine prospects were produced, including one of London from Westminster Bridge to the Tower on five-sheets.
Nathaniel died about 1756 and Samuel lived until 1779. A few years before Samuel died Robert Sayer purchased the copper plates from him, re-issuing them in 1774 in a volume. The imprints were not altered but were arranged alphabetically by place name and each provided with a plate number in the top right corner, as this example.

Durham

Saxton: DurhamChristopher Saxton.
The County Palatine and Bishoprick of Durham Described by C. Saxton and Amended with Additions by P: Lea.
[London: Philip Lea, c.1693.]
Engraving  with outline colour on the county borders only. 
A later printing of the first printed map of Durham, engraved by Augustinus Ryther in 1576. The map has been updated giving an entirely different appearance to the map. : the original title has been replaced by a plan of Durham, taken from the county map by John Speed; the arms of Queen Elizabeth have been changed to those of Charles I; and the arms of Thomas Seckford, the original sponsor, are covered by the new title.
There are numerous geographical additions to place names to the neighbouring counties: many more hills have been added to Westmoreland; names of wards are now included; and outside the border at the top and the left side graticules are added with letters.
There was a proposed edition of the map in 1665, when these changes were made. Close examination shows a mitre added to Durham and a cross added to each of the market towns, added circa 1689. In the edition of c.1693, the title was altered to the current title. Beneath this title can be seen the partial erasure of the previous one. The principal roads are shown, taken from John Ogilby's Britannia, which would have made the atlas very much more desirable. At Weardale (spelt Weredale) a tent is added.

Etching    Very good condition.
Not much is known about this competent etcher, even his dates, but he worked from about 1650. His style is akin to that of Hollar, who was a few years senior to King. He was particularly good at drawing and etching churches, of which there are over fifty subjects. This view of Beverley is typical: it shows the building with a little shading round it, but the surrounds are left plain, no animation, and nothing in the sky other that the coat of arms of Michael Warton and the title.
