George Washington Bacon was born in New York State in 1830.

Bacon expanded and improved the plates before publishing them in 1882 as the New Large-Scale Ordnance Atlas of the British Isles. Over the next 20 years he became known as a prolific publisher of late-Victorian atlases of the British Isles, of London, and of the World, in many editions.
