SKU: jcbrhe001

An attractive and detailed map of Hertfordshire, engraved by the renowned John Cary, which appeared in Richard Gough's new translation of Camden's Britannia (London: John Stockdale, 1805-c.1812)

John Cary was probably the best English map maker who ever lived as his maps were unsurpassed for their detail, accuracy and clarity. The maps engraved for Camden's Britannia were produced for a new translation of the work by Richard Gough and to replace the now worn Robert Morden plates.
