A New Map Of South Britain Or England And Wales : J. Smith

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A fine example of a rare and interesting map of England and Wales. The map " Containing all the Cities and Market Towns with the Roads from Town to Town and the number of Reputed Miles" follows the lead of John Adams's 1679 influential and important map showing, for the first time, road distances around the country. Intended for the use of merchants and purveyors particularly of perishable foodstuffs such as meat, fish and vegetables, the map was one of the first thematic maps produced for an economic purpose. This is well engraved and finely printed and was prepared for one of the grandest topographical works devoted to the British Isles - David Mortier's "Nouveau Theatre de la Grande Bretagne ..." published in Amsterdam and London and containing magnificent plans and panoramas of towns, buildings, notable houses around the country engraved mainly by Johannes Kip. Seemingly John Smith's only cartographic production, this has his imprint along the lower border with address and date.
