Published a number of cartographic works, Thomas produced an Ancient Geography in 1741, based on Honduis, they also cooperated in the production of Salmon's Modern History in 1744-46 and in 1748 they published their attractive county maps, Geographia Magnae Britanniae.

They also owned the copyright to Daniel Dafoe's A Tour Through the Whole Island of Great Britain. Subsequently the atlas was sometimes advertised as a suitable companion and proper supplement to the Dafoe book and also contained adverts for the Dafoe book in the preliminary pages.
