The map and the men who made it

The speed and comfort of road travel in Britain increased enormously during the 18th century. Daniel Paterson (1739-1825) brought out the first edition of his ‘road book’ in 1771, and by the early 19th century his name had become almost as closely associated with travel by road as George Bradshaw’s would become with railway travel. The map could be bound with Mogg’s ‘Survey of the Roads from London to Brighton’ 1808, or sold separately as here.
