Biography:

John Hinton (fl.1745 d.1781)

A bookseller and publisher of renown, especially for his publication of atlases and maps by Emanuel Bowen and Thomas Kitchin and The Universal Museum and Complete Magazine of Knowledge and Pleasure (1747-1803). This later became The Universal Magazine (1814-1815).

Hinton's contribution, which appeared in the magazine between 1765 and 1773, consisted of 39 plates of road maps and counties. The road maps were based on John Ogilby's Britannia of 1675, and were much larger than many contemporary pocket sized editions of road books that had become fashionable.

The Universal Magazine was published monthly, two volumes per year, with Volume I for June-December 1747. The county maps were among the best executed and most attractive of the magazine maps, many having decorative baroque style cartouches.
