MORDEN, Robert Oxfordshire

Abel Swale Awnsham & John Churchill, 1722.

Second edition, with "Forrest Hill" spelt correctly. 424mm x 353mm. Copperplate engraved map. Detailed map of Oxfordshire with scale of miles to bottom left. A near fine double-page map.

An intricately detailed map from William Camden's Britannia. Morden was employed to replace the outdated maps by Saxton and based his maps on manuscript sources, as well as the surveys of Ogilby and Morgan, Seller, Palmer and the coastal charts of Captain Greenville Collins.
These maps were the first to show the roads based on Ogilby's earlier work of 1675, and include 3 scales to cover the various ones used in different parts of the country, including minutes of time (top border) and degrees (bottom border). For most countries at this time, longitude was based on the meridian of St Paul's Cathedral in London. Bishop Gibson described the maps from this series as "much the fairest and most correct of any that have yet appeared".
