A New And Correct Mapp Of Middlesex, Essex And Hertfordshire ... : J. Warburton / J. Bland

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Rare wall-map of the three counties to the north of London, surveyed by John Warburton, Joseph Bland and Payler Smith, and engraved by Samuel Parker. This enormous and spectacular map was printed on six sheets joined, dissected, mounted on canvas and folding into a modern slipcase. This remarkable map is particularly notable for the panels found on three sides containing some 738 coats of arms of the nobility and gentry of the counties, and for its large scale and consequent extensive detail. Warburton's commercial enthusiasm landed him in trouble with the College Of Arms on account of a number of inaccuracies in the detail of some of the arms and despite Warburton's enthusiasm for self-promotion, the map received little support but remains a fascinating cartographic work. Overall a very nice example.
