MORDEN, Robert, fl. 1668-1703.
Attractive map of Leicestershire. Title in decorative cartouche at lower left. Morden’s maps for Camden’s Britannia were a landmark in British mapmaking. In response to public demand, the smaller Morden atlas, The Magna Britannia was published in 1702. These small Morden maps are now much harder to find than the larger, better known maps upon which they are based.
