Daniel Paterson's pocket-sized "British Itinerary" was first issued in 1785 "... Being A New And Accurate Delineation And Description Of The Direct & Principal Cross Roads Of Great Britain ...". Well engraved, each plate comprises two sections showing in detail about 20 miles along the main road and adjacent country so villages, parks, major houses and so on all appear. Both sides of the page are marked with maps although the verso maps often are unrelated to the main map (in this case Wellington to Oswestry). The current map is from the book's second edition published by Bowles and Carver.
