A beautifully engraved and accurate early 19th century map of Buckinghamshire which appeared in John Cary’s Traveller’s Companion* (London: 1821). John Cary (c.1754-1835) is arguably the best English map maker who ever lived as his maps are unsurpassed for their quality, accuracy and detail.

*The maps from the Traveller’s Companion, prepared at the request of the Postmaster General, were based on an entirely new survey of the Turnpike roads of England & Wales carried out by Cary from 1780 onwards. On publication, the maps proved to be immensely popular and had a considerable influence on the formative work of the Ordnance Survey Office which was established in 1791.
