click here to view a large version in a separate window

One of the key maps of Buckinghamshire, Jefferys' four-sheet publication stands amongst the great large-scale county maps of the late eighteenth century, representing England with unprecedented accuracy and detail. All manner of geographical features are made visible through crisp engraving, original outline colour and an exhaustive key. Distances, landowners, Roman sites, even the relative importance of towns and villages are included without confusion or clutter. A cartouche incorporating a view of Eton college occurs lower left, above which is situated a town plan of Buckingham. This example of the first edition, was published by Jefferys himself in 1770 and is therefore one of his last works. Paper browned and laid on new canvas for protection.
