Biography:
Geopge Augustus Walpoole (or Walpole) was British topographer responsible for only one notable cartographic work, The New British Traveller, which appeared in 1784. This was a five-part work and Walpoole was assisted in its preparation by A Society of Gentlemen. The folio atlas contains 23 plates most showingtwo, though sometimes four, maps of the English counties with decorative scrols top and bottom.

The maps are sometimes trimmed to the edge of the border, thus omitting the scrolls ant imprint. Although most of the maps were engraved by Thomas Conder, the signature of Hatchett is found on the second edition dated 1790.
