The Smaller Islands In The British Ocean : R. Morden

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive and popular map of Islands in the British Ocean. Robert Morden (d.1703) was commissioned to engrave a set of county maps for Edmund Gibson's new edition. However, 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. These maps are plain and simple, invariably with decorative title surround, and charmingly engraved. Their detail, small size, visual attraction and antiquity make them among the most popular of all early county maps.
