'NOTTINGHAM SHIRE by Rob.t Morden' c.1695
SKU: mord/nott/003

An interesting and attractive late 17th century map of Nottinghamshire which was produced by Robert Morden and published in Camden's Britannia (London: Swale, Awnshaw & Churchill, 1695 - 1772). 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!

This particular map comes from the 1695 edition which had a number of errors including Gamston being described as 'Gremston'.
