recent arrival
Around 1732 Henry Overton and John Hoole published nine maps of southern English counties on two sheets intended to be joined and displayed as wall decoration. The counties of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex and the Isle of Wight were carefully engraved and bordered by the coats of arms of major towns in the county - here Salisbury, Wilton, Downton, Hindon, Heytesbury, Westbury, Calne, Devizes, Chippenham, Malmesbury, Cricklade and Bedwin; the engraver was Richard William Seale. These maps are very scarce with just three sets of these nine maps known, two in the British Library and one in private hands, and it is rare to find an individual map as here. In fact this is the only map from the series we have ever handled. The map has close margins bur is in attractive and careful original outline colour.
