click here to view a large version in a separate window

A charming and scarce road map of England and Wales from John Cowley's "Geography of England" - a small county atlas into which this unusual map was folded and, consequently, often found with tears and worn folds. The map shows diagrammatic depictions of the roads with their distances from place to place and has an attractive title cartouche, at top right, with surveyors, one using a waywiser, and a huntsman. The running title, along the top of the plate, has a direction to the binder beneath and the decorated title is "The Traveller's Guide Or Pocket Companion ... Of South Britain". With margin trimmed close at lower left corner reinstated with no loss of text.
