“Environs of Belfast” … 1895 … from Bacon’s “Library Atlas of the British Isles” … 1895 … 9” x 12” (22.8 cms x 30.5 cms) … original printed colour. George Washington Bacon (1830 – 1922) was a London based book and map publisher. His firm G. W. Bacon and Co. purchased the plates created by Edward Weller for the Weekly Dispatch Atlas and modified and updated them for several of their own important atlases including “The New Ordnance Atlas of the British Isles”. In 1893, Bacon & Co. acquired the map publishing business of J. Wyld. Then, around the turn of the century, Bacon & Co. itself was folded into the Scottish publishing house of W. & A. K. Johnston. The map is in excellent condition. Map Ref: 149
