A New Map of England;
from the latest observations...
An extremely striking and handsome map of England and Wales, highlighted by a wonderful title cartouche, featuring the plentiful ‘bounty’ of England in exquisite pictorial form. Each county is coloured in outline. John Senex was a noted publisher, engraver and seller of maps, atlases and globes during the first half of the eighteenth century. He became the geographer to Queen Anne, and was duly elected to the Royal Society in 1728. This map was published in his ‘A New General Atlas…’.
