A charming 18th Century map of Pembrokeshire which appeared in Owen & Bowen’s pocket road atlas, Britannia Depicta or Ogilby Improv’d (London: T. Bowles, 1724). This map is double sided, showing the road from St. David’s to Cardigan — via Fishguard and Newport — on the verso.

Based on the maps by the renowned John Ogilby, ‘Britannia Depicta’ (1720-c.1764) was one of the most popular atlases of the 18th century. Each map was finely engraved by Emanuel Bowen (1694?-1767) who was one of the most esteemed and prolific map makers of the period. As with many of his maps, he included copious amounts of text — written by the antiquarian, John Owen — describing the county.
