A rare and fascinating detailed plan of Salisbury, south Wiltshire, surveyed by William Naish and published in London by the active mapmaker/publisher John Senex. Finely engraved and at a large scale, the plan is further adorned by a panorama, at top right, of the City, a detailed view of the Cathedral at lower right and a detailed map of the river Avon, from the City to Christchurch, on the coast. William Naish is thought to have been a surgeon's mate in the Royal Navy and, subsequently, Assistant Surveyor of the Fabric at the Cathedral. This is the first large scale map of the City and it is interesting to see the original rectangular pattern of the town's design, divided into "chequers". A lettered and symboled key at top right identifies major buildings and a list of Preachers is given in a calendar at lower left. This rare separately published chart has suffered some worming over the years and is now expertly backed for conservation.
