An attractive 17th century Robert Morden map of the East Riding of Yorkshire 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 Kingston upon Hull is described as ‘Kingston su Hull’. This was altered to ‘Kingston Super Hull’ for the next edition of 1722
