Detailed and attractive map from Thomas Kitchin, prolific engraver and cartographer. The map has a beautiful and decorative baroque cartouche including a scene of boats at sea and wheatsheaves. The explanation shows symbols for Borough towns 'with the number of members they send to Parliament by stars', market towns, parishes, villages, post roads and crossroads. The road from Conway to Holyhead is marked. The map was engraved for the London Magazine or Gentleman's Monthly Intelligencer, which appeared in monthly parts between the years 1732 and 1783.
