EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a remarkable piece of history - the 1720 Lyme Regis early map of the coast. Created through the intricate process of copperplate engraving by Emanuel Bowen and John Owen, this exquisite artwork is a testament to their craftsmanship and attention to detail. The map itself offers a glimpse into the past, depicting the Jurassic coast with a particular focus on Lyme Regis. The old spelling "Lime Regis" alludes to the local quarries that were once abundant in fossiliferous limestone, used for extracting lime. It is within these very exposures that Mary Anning would later make her groundbreaking fossil discoveries during the early 19th century. As we delve into this visual treasure trove, we are transported back in time to an era when British cartography was at its peak. Every stroke and contour on this map tells a story of exploration and discovery along Dorset's breathtaking coastline. Paul D. Stewart has expertly captured not only the historical significance but also the artistic beauty of this masterpiece. The illustration skillfully combines elements of science, art, and geology - showcasing both human ingenuity and nature's wonders. This print serves as a reminder of our rich scientific heritage while paying homage to those who paved the way for future generations' understanding of Earth's ancient past.
