A fine detailed map of The Netherlands with title on top left and scales below. John Cary is considered by some to be the finest of English cartographers. His maps, although not the most decorative, appeal for their clarity, detail and the precision of engraving. When the Ordnance Survey began accurately mapping the UK, they used John Cary’s style as the basis for their work. Cary’s New Universal Atlas.

Copper engraving. Original colour. Good condition. Some minor offset. Some browning from the hinge-guard at centrefold. Brown mark just below scales. Size: 51.5 x 46 cm.
