click here to view a large version in a separate window

8vo. Double-page titlepage, double-page dedication, 46 double-page copperplate engraved maps with 6 double-page tables. Full gilt ruled calf with a little wear and joints starting. Paper labels pasted to spine with handwritten title. The armorial bookplate of Hellier Gosselin of Bengeo Hall appears on the paste-down endpaper. These attractive miniature maps of the counties are engraved by W.H.Toms and include listings of the various market days and number of members returned to parliament. Trimmed close at the top with a little loss to the titles in some cases. The county maps are prefaced by "An Accurate Chart Of The Sea Coast, Exhibiting All The Royal Docks, Fortifications, Harbours, Stands &c", "A Map Of England And Wales, As Divided Into Counties, With The Names Of The Cities And County Towns; And The Length Breadth, And Superficial Content Of The Whole, And Each County Separately", "A Map Of The Great Roads From London, To All Parts Of South Britain ..." and "A Map Of All The Cross Roads, From One Great Town To Another ...". A fascinating record of trade, travel and politics, as well as geography and cartography, at this time.
