    Ogilby's Map of England

    John Ogilby (1600-1676), cartographer. The Road From London to Kingslyn. 19 x 14.5 inches (sheet size). One small hole near the top, else fine. Hand-colored roads and cartouche.

    More Information:

    Ogilby's road strip maps were a milestone in the development of cartography as they were used to determine the positions of the milestones on the principle highways of England and Wales. The roads are shown as a continuous strip on a scroll with the north point of the compass turning to keep the roads virtually straight. Villages, towns, hills, forests, fenced and unfenced roadways are shown and the turnings to nearby places are indicated.
