Kitchin worked as a publisher and engraver from premises at The Star in Holborn, London. He was an engraver of the highest ability and produced a broad range of books on a variety of subjects as including topographical works. By himself, Kitchen produced a large number of maps of every kind for periodicals such as the London Magazine and for books on history and antiquities. He is probably best known though, for his partnership with Emanuel Bowen with whom he published, in 1755, 'The Large English Atlas' which contained the finest county maps of the 18th.Century
