A New Map Of The Kingdome Of England And Wales ... : N. Visscher / J. Overton

A magnificent and most informative map of the road network within England and Wales, combining both English and Dutch techniques in production. The map is flanked by tables of the market towns listing their market days and other details. The map's title, enclosed in a bold and decorative cartouche, has text in English, whilst the explanations and table titles are given in Dutch. The map has a somewhat complicated printing history with much of the road and distance detail taken from John Adams' famous map. The imprint of Visscher and Overton tells the reader that the map may be bought in both Amsterdam and London - indicative of the links and trade between nations at this time. The Dutch market obviously supported the production of such a map of England and Wales. This is the second state of the map lacking the dedication to James II, that appeared on the first c.1685 edition. this second state includes an 'explanation' in Dutch that has been pasted over the printed original. Expert restoration to centrefold and old folds as one might expect, otherwise in good condition and very attractive hand-colour.
