A stunning A5 2023 diary featuring images from the British Library collection.

This week-to-view diary is illustrated with details of images specially selected from the Topographical Collection of King George III of Great Britain and Ireland (reigned 1760-1820). The collection, which is one of the finest of its type in existence, consists of around 40,000 early maps, views, plans, prints, drawings and watercolours. Dating from between 1500 and 1824, these contain rich, diverse and occasionally unexpected representations of continents, countries, regions, towns, coasts, vistas, buildings, military structures and natural phenomena from throughout the world, and across the centuries.

Assembled during the formative period of the British Empire, the collection is an important resource for the study of how Britain viewed and interacted with the wider world during this time. It was presented to the nation by King George IV in 1823 and is now part of the Map Collections of the British Library.

Printed on 100gsm uncoated paper, with a different image for each week. Complete with a ribbon marker and endpapers.
