Maps from 1861 Beeton’s Dictionary of Universal Information

Beeton’s was a publisher in the 1860s, and whilst most famous for the book about household management, they also published other works, one of which was entitled the Beeton’s Dictionary of Universal Information.

The style was much the same as Reverend Barclay’s dictionary, with some engravings, sitting alongside the articles. This edition had thirteen monochrome maps drawn by Francis Young, and engraved by Lewis Becker: Africa, Asia, Australia, Austrian Empire, England and Wales, Europe, the Telegraphs of Europe, France, Germany, Ireland, North America, Scotland and South America.
