'A MAP OF SURRY FROM THE BEST AUTHORITIES' by Cary / Noble c.1806 (ex Camden's Britannia)
SKU: cacb/surr/001

An attractive and detailed early 19th century map of Surrey which was engraved by John Cary, from a drawing by E. Noble, and published in Richard Gough's new translation of Camden's Britannia (London: J. Stockdale, 1805/1806).

John Cary was arguably the best English map maker who ever lived as his maps were unsurpassed for their detail, accuracy and clarity. The maps he 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.
