Finely's maps employ a delicate and elegant engraving style and provided extensive topographical and watershed information.

His maps were printed on high quality paper and were routinely corrected and updated.

This boldly engraved copper plate map by Young & Delleker presents fine detail of the roads, towns and villages.
