Thomas Kitchin, 1754

The Isle of Man Drawn from the best Authorities By T.Kitchin Geogr

215mm x 165mm

A series of 56 maps by T Kitchin appeared in London Magazine from 1747-60 all bear name of T Kitchin and at bottom (few exceptions) "Printed for R Baldwin jun at the Rose in Paternoster Row"

The London Magazine was published from 1732 to 1785 mostly by Robert Baldwin publisher in Paternoster Row (fl 1749-1810) who succeeded his uncle R.Baldwin and was in turn suceeded by another Robert Baldwin.
(A Dublin edition of the LM was published which seemed to use re-engraved close copies of the maps (cf Berks) - unclear if this is case for IoM)
As in earlier 1749 Kitchin Castletown labelled “Sodor or Castletown”
Snaefell labelled “Suable, Suawble & Snafield”
