A New And Correct Map Of North Wales : R.Morden / Anonymous

Following the appearance in 1695 of Morden's map of Wales there were complaints of errors and omissions. This is the new and corrected plate of 1722 - based on Morden's. Although anonymous, the style of engraving very much resembles that of Andrew Johnston who created new maps of Scotland for this edition. Robert Morden (d.1703) was commissioned to engrave a set of county maps for Edmund Gibson's new edition. Morden's first series of maps were rejected as being too small, and these were later published in Morden's"New Description and State of England", first issued in 1701, and subsequently re-issued in Cox's "Magna Britannia", in the 1720s. Morden finally produced a new set of maps on a larger scale which were used in Gibson's editions published in 1695, 1722, circa 1730, 1753 1772, as here. The maps were based on the most up-to-date surveys where available, although some drew on Saxton and Speed, and were engraved by Sutton Nicholls and John Sturt. Their detail,convenient size, visual attraction and antiquity make them among the most popular of all early county maps.
