SKU: read/derb/001

An attractive and neatly engraved 18th century map of Derbyshire, by Thomas Read*, which appeared in P. Russell & O. Price's England Display'd (London: Adlard & Browne, 1769).

*These maps are often attributed to John Rocque, an eminent Georgian cartographer of Huguenot descent; in reality, he was only a later publisher. Thomas Read, the original printer, was the main force in the production of the atlas. The maps themselves are based largely on those done by Herman Moll in 1708.
