Each map, engraved by William Henry Toms, has a column of Historical and topical notes of local interest. The atlas appeared in 1742 but many of the maps are dated 1741.

It was the first eighteenth century atlas to be pocket sized, the atlas was a commercial success, was advertised regularly and was soon being retailed by twenty six booksellers.
