An attractive and detailed map of Rutland. The map was published in the 1806 second edition (the first published in 1789) of Gough's enlarged version of William Camden's "Britannia". The map was printed for John Stockdale, Piccadilly, by J.Nichols and son. John Stockdale, an important London publisher who also edited and published the works of Dr Samuel Johnson, had also published these maps in his "New British Atlas" of 1805. William Camden (1551-1623) was an English historian and antiquary who devoted himself to the study of the antiquities of Britain, travelling round the country visiting sites. The results of his work were brought together in the "Britannia" first published in 1586 then much reissued and augmented. However, one of the few criticisms levelled at the first edition of this work was the absence of maps. This failing was remedied in the sixth edition of 1607 for which maps were commissioned from William Kip and William Hole. The 1695 revised edition by Edmund Gibson had maps by Robert Morden, and Richard Gough enlarged and revised the work again towards the end of the eighteenth-century with maps by John Cary. Cary's maps are of a very high technical standard, being finely engraved, but are also designed to be functional, striving for accuracy rather than decoration.
