Description

An interesting and attractive map of Somerset, first published by Robert Morden in 1695, which appeared in Camden's Britannia (London: Swale, Awnshaw & Churchill, 1695 - 1772). Bishop Gibson described the maps from this series as much the fairest and most correct of any that have yet appeared. The maps are also notable for using up to three different mileage scales, none of which are based on the statute mile! Includes Glocestershire, Devonshire and Dorsetshire.
