'MIDLESEX By Robt. Morden' (Middlesex) c.1730
SKU: mord/midd/003

An interesting and attractive map of Middlesex which was produced by Robert Morden in 1695 and published in Camden's Britannia (London: Swale, Awnshaw & Churchill, 1730). Bishop Gibson described the maps from this series as "much the fairest and most correct of any that have yet appeared". The maps are also notable for using up to three different mileage scales, none of which are based on the statute mile!

The map comes from a 1730 edition which shows the revisions of 1722 ('Chanler' was changed to 'Cantlers') but still shows Uxbridge as 'Uxbridg' (this was altered for the 1753 edition).
