Map, Hampshire, scale about 9 miles to 1 inch, by James Wallis, London, 1812; published 1812-14.

Published in 'A New and Improved County Atlas. Wallis's New British Atlas containing a complete set of County Maps divided into Hundreds in which are carefully delineated all the Direct and Cross Roads, Cities, towns, Villages, Parks, Seats, Rivers, and Navigable Canals, and a general Map of England and Wales. The whole engraved in the most accurate manner from the latest actual surveys. London: Published by J. Wallis, 1812.'
The atlas size is 10 1/2 x 16 ins.

Published in another edition '... Published by S. A. Oddy, 1812.' probably 1813.
The atlas size is 6 1/2 x 10 ins.

Published as a 'Second Edition with Considerable Improvements & Additions by G. Herbert, Geographer', 'London, Published by J. Wallis 1814'.
One '... Improvement ...' on the 2nd edition is the addition of a meridian, labelled 'Meridian of London', at 0 degrees. As this is really the 2 degree West meridian the label is a bad mistake.
