An interesting and attractive late17th century Robert Morden map of Cornwall which was 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 first edition of 1695 as it has a number of errors; for example, St. Austell is described as ‘Anstel’.
