Bowles For full description see below - after all photographs Description: London: Printed and Sold by Tho. Bowles, 1749 or earlier. 3 Ogilby maps framed in a black and gilt frame measuring 21 ¾ inches by 11 inches. Each map measures 7 ¼ inches by 4 ¾ inches. The first map depicts the road from Newport Painel [Pagnell] to Cambridge, the second map is the road from Stoney Stratford to Dunstable and the last map is the road from London (Southwark) to Tamworth. "Ogilby secured the title of His Majesty's Cosmographer early in 1671 [and] drew upon the support of the King and other patrons in the production and publication of Britannia, the work for which he became best known. Chiefly a road atlas, it was securely based on contemporary and collaborative research. Ogilby drew out 2519 miles of road in the form of 100 strip maps, a technique that was widely imitated throughout the following century. Measuring distances by waywiser (his "great wheel"), he made allowance for roads that ascended hills yet had to be depicted in two dimensions on paper, and his surveys helped to standardize the mile at 1760 yards throughout the kingdom. Britannia marked the first major advance in cartography in England since the Tudor period, though it did echo earlier traditions. It was republished in 1698, 1719, and 1720, and on subsequent occasions up to modern times" (DNB) Condition Report Externally See above and photos. Internally See above and photos.
