The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, or SDUK, was established in 1826 to provide scientific and other information to the British middle and working classes. Many of its works were beyond the means of the working classes.
The SDUK published several editions of its atlas. Dates I have seen quoted are 1829-1832, 1840, 1844, and 1846. In 1848 the SDUK ceased to be active, but works which it had commissioned continued to be published.
