Copper engraving produced by Robert Morden for publication in Edmund Gibson's translation of William Camden's Britannia first published by Abel Swalle and Awnsham & John Churchill in 1695. Sutton Nichols and John Sturt have signed some of the maps as engravers and may well have engraved others but other engravers were also probably employed.This is the first series of maps to mark longitude in minutes of time (top border) as well as in degrees (bottom border). For most counties longitude is based on the meridian of St. Paul's, London. They were the first folio sized series of county maps to show roads, Morden using the survey and strip road maps of John Ogilby (published in his road book, also entitled Britannia, in 1675). Morden's miniature maps produced on a set of playing cards in 1676, shortly after Ogilb's production, were the first complete set of county maps to include roads. Morden did not use Ogilby's standardisation of measure for the mile at 1760 yards and used the somewhat arbitrary approximation of local variations to include three scales, 'Great', 'Middle' and 'Small' miles on his maps.
The work was republished in 1722, 1730, 1753 and, finally in 1772. The plate was updated for the 1722 edition mostly with changes to place name spellings and was reworked for the 1753 edition due to wear on the plate.
This very good example of Buckinghamshire is printed on fine rag paper from a 1695 edition. Reasonable margins all round. No damage or repairs. Good later hand colour
