'SURREY' by Robert Morden c.1695 (First Edition / Original Hand Colour)
SKU: mord/surr/005

An interesting and attractive late 17th century map of Surrey which was produced by Robert Morden for 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 as South Lambeth is described as 'So Lambeth'; this was changed in the next edition.
