After his uncle died in 1823, the business was carried on by his sons Aaron and Samuel until 1839 when John took over the business. In 1834, he published his ” London Atlas ” which was the best set of such maps then in existence. He followed the atlas with a long series of elaborate and carefully executed maps, with those of Australia, America, Africa and India being especially valuable.

His maps were very numerous, and their neatness and finished style gained him a very extensive reputation.The map is in very good condition. Ref. Map 15
