Emanuel Bowen and Thomas Bowen

Emanuel Bowen (1714 – 1767) map and print seller, engraver to George II and to Louis XV of France, worked in London producing some the best and most attractive maps of the 18th century. Along with Thomas Kitchin, he published “The Large English Atlas”. Many of the maps were issued individually from 1749 onwards and the whole atlas was not finally completed until 1760. The atlas was also reissued later in reduced size. His work is noted for Bowen’s own style of historical and heraldic detail. Thomas (1767-1790) helped his father during his lifetime and produced many fine maps in his own right after his father’s death.
