SKU: bade/waso/001 Category:

An interesting 18th century map of South Wales which was drawn and engraved by Thomas Badeslade and William Henry Toms, respectively, and published in Chorographia Britanniae (London: W. H. Toms, 1741-1749).

Originally planned for an intended Royal tour of the country by George I, ‘Chorographia Britanniae’ was published later in the 1740s where it proved to be one of the most popular atlases of the 18th century. This was due, not least, to the engraver, William Henry Toms, whose work was of the highest standard. The maps were also popular for their inclusion of a panel of text describing the county’s towns and cities including the dates of markets and fairs and numbers of M.P.s
