Glamorganshire : C. Saxton / P. Lea

click here to view a large version in a separate window

In around 1665 the instrument-maker and mapseller Philip Lea (d.1700) came into possession of the Saxton plates. Lea re-engraved two plates which were missing, perhaps casualties of the Great Fire. He also reworked the original plates, enriching Saxton's maps by incorporating geographical and decorative detail, mainly from those of Speed and Ogilby, modernising and substituting English (for Latin) titles and scales. This map does not have the town maps of Cardiff and Llandaff, so may be the first edition. Slight tear on lower edge.
