The "London Magazine: or, a Gentleman's Monthly Intelligencer", in which this map was published, was issued monthly from April 1732 until June 1783 and was a worthy competitor of other monthly magazines being produced at this time, most notably the "Gentleman's Magazine". The maps, views, diagrams and other illustrations contained therein were carefully drafted and engraved, and related to pertinent political, social, economic, historical and geographical issues of the day. At bottom left is a baroque cartouche with lakeside pastoral vignette, and at top right a baroque representation of the arms of Radnor. The map, printed for R.Baldwin, has a key to borough towns and MP numbers, market towns, villages, roads and crossroads.
