Later he had his own premises in Bloomsbury, 18 Strand, London. Produced a World Atlas for the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge published between 1844 and 1876.
Hall contributed to two British County Atlases; Samuel Leigh's New Picture and in 1831, A Topographical Dictionary of Great Britain and Ireland by John Gorton. This appeared with 54 maps engraved by Hall. Gorton also produced a biographical dictionary.
