1843 SDUK Grecian Archipelago
This superior reproduction of the original antique hand colored steel plate engraved map of “Grecian Archipelago” was originally published circa 1843. This is a very fine example from the fascinating and highly accurate series of maps issued in London between about 1830 and 1850 by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, commonly known as the SDUK. The Society was formed by the publisher Charles Knight and Henry Brougham, a radical politician and reformer, in March 1828. During its lifetime, the SDUK were extremely active publishing numerous informative and improving works.
