Notes: [source Swaen] The Arrowsmith family members were among the most respected and influential cartographers of the nineteenth century. Taken from 'The London Atlas of Universal Geography?' John Arrowsmith (1790-1873) joined his uncle, Aaron Arrowsmith in mapmaking in London in 1810. Upon the death of his uncle in 1823, the business was carried on by Aaron's two sons Samuel and Aaron. In 1839, John took over the business. This atlas was first published in 1834
