... This Map Of Kent Is Most Humbly Presented ... : P.Lea

A detailed and scarce map of Kent with the hills in relief, the roads shown and an inset plan of Canterbury. Philip Lea had purchased the plates of Christopher Saxton's atlas and set about modernising them; adding roads and town plans, removing arms, adding English titles, and so on. However, Saxton had no map of Kent alone - just one map covering Kent, Surrey, Sussex and Middlesex - a surprise given the importance of these counties. Lea had amended this combined plate for the first edition of his atlas, published about 1689, but subsequently produced new and separate maps of Surrey and Kent, as here. This plate went on to be re-issued by Willdey and later by John Bowles, but all issues are rare. Small old ms notation, otherwise an attractive example of a sought-after county map.
