Map of Oxford Shire

MORDEN, Robert

MORDEN, Robert Map of Oxford Shire

1695.

418mm x 358mm. First edition. Original hand-coloured, copper-engraved map, with Forrest Hill misspelled "Forris Hill". A fine copy, with the central fold as issued.

Produced by Morden for the 1695 edition of Camden's Britannia. Morden was employed to replace the outdated maps by Saxton, engraved by Kip and Hole. He based his maps on manuscript sources plus the surveys of Ogilby and Morgan, Seller, Palmer and the coastal charts of Cpt. Greenville Collins. These maps were the first to show the roads based on Ogilby's earlier work of 1675, and included 3 scales to cover the various scales used in different parts of the country.
Bishop Gibson described the maps from this series as "much the fairest and most correct of any that have yet appeared".
