Sidney Hall (1818-1860) was a prolific engraver who produced maps for many atlases and publishers. In particular, he engraved a set of English county maps which were issued under several atlas titles. These maps went through many editions and show a series of revisions. It is common, for example, to find railway information updated by hand.
