BRITANNIA DEPICTA OR OGILBY IMPROV'D. BEING A CORRECT COPP'Y OF MR. OGGILBY'S ACTUAL SURVEY OF ALL DIRECT & PRINCIPAL CROSS ROADS IN ENGLAND AND WALES: WHEREIN ARE EXACTLY DELINEATED & ENGRAVEN ALL YE CITIES, TOWNS, VILLAGES, CHURCHES, SEAT &c SCITUATE ON OR NEAR ROADS WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE DISTANCES IN MEASURED AND COMPUTED MILES
Thos. Bowles, London 1760 - 273pp, plus 1p "Catalogue of some Prints & Maps, Printed & sold by Thos. Bowles at his shop next by Chapter House in St. Pauls Ch-Yard London". The prelims and pages 1-4 inclusive are, sadly, lacking, making it difficult to definitely identify which this is of the several editions published between 1720 and 1764, although it does include the County maps. The maps have not been coloured, the pages appear to be untrimmed, and minor chipping of the edges of a few pages has been professionally repaired. The spine and covers appear to be an early rebinding, with the original (?) tooled leather covers laid on. The end papers are quite new. Overall, a nice collectible copy. Pix and other detail available upon request. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
