AN ACCURATE MAP OF THE COUNTY OF KENT DIVIDED INTO ITS LATHES, AND SUBDIVIDED INTO HUNDREDS. DRAWN FROM THE BEST AUTHORITIES AND ADORNED WITH VIEWS OF THE CATHEDRAL CHURCHES OF CANTERBURY AND ROCHESTER, WITH DESCRIPTIONS OF THEIR RESPECTIVE DIOCESES AND OTHER IMPROVEMENTS.
Carington Bowles in St. Pauls Churchyard, I. Ryall and R. Sayer in Fleet Street, T. Kitchin on Holborn Hill, H. Overton without Newgate, I. Bowles and H. Parker in Cornhill, London. 1762 - Copper-engraved map, 20 x 16.5 inches, outlined in original hand-colouring. Lightly browned with traces of old folds but a very fine example. From the first edition of The Royal English Atlas engraved by Emanuel Bowen and Thomas Kitchin - the maps being very similar to those published in the Large English Atlas, some of the best produced in the eighteenth century. Similar detailed notes of historical and topographical facts fill all the available space surrounding the map. As noted in the title, the Cathedrals of Canterbury and Rochester are shown on this sheet replacing the chart of the Downs and the dedication cartouche of the larger sheet. The pictorial and allegorical cartouche depicting the maritime and agricultural prowess of the county differs in several details but remains largely the same.
