A charming 18th Century map of Radnorshire (now part of Powys) which appeared in Owen & Bowen's pocket road atlas, Britannia Depicta or Ogilby Improv'd (London: T. Bowles, 1720-c.1764).

Britannia Depicta (1720-1764) was one of the most popular atlases of the 18th century being published in many editions for close to fifty years.The maps themselves were engraved by Emanuel Bowen (1694?-1767) who was one of the most renowned and prolific map makers of the period. As with many of his maps, he has included copious amounts of text -- written by John Owen -- describing the county.
