A New Map of ENGLAND from the latest Authorities.
Clear and accurate map of early nineteenth century England and Wales. Two scales and title at top right. John Cary was considered ‘the most representative, able and prolific of English cartographers’. Tooley says, ‘As an engraver he was elegant and exact with fine clear lettering and great delicacy of touch’. When the Ordnance Survey began accurately mapping the United Kingdom, they used John Cary’s style as the basis for their work.
