This is the fifty sheet 1842 edition, with fifteen maps added including the second state of the rare Map of Texas (1843) and several maps dated 1844. This edition of this atlas is unrecorded in Verner, Phillips, National Maritime Museum, and the British Museum World. The fourteen other additional maps include interesting maps of Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Caribbean. Bound with half-leather brown boards with "The London Atlas, by J. Arrowsmith." embossed on the cover.
