William Pinnock (1782-1843), born in Alton, Hampshire became a schoolmaster. In 1817 he moved to London and, in partnership with Samuel Maunder, began the publication of cheap educational works. The Guide to Knowledge was a publication issued in weekly parts between 1833 and 1834 and containing maps printed from the woodblock with the incised lines appearing white on a black ground. The technique proved unpopular for topographical maps and was not used again, the county maps appearing again in a more traditional format by lithographic transfer Johnson's Atlas of England in 1847 & 1863.
Unsigned but the engraver was probablyJoshua Archer (c.1792-1863), who engraved most of the woodblocks for this work.
Extent: Ostend to Dresden and Munich to Berlin.
Fine example. Includes page of accompanying text.
