Cary’s Map of Herefordshire, from Camden’s BritanniaSKU: 8941
This characteristically clear and elegant map of Herefordshire is by John Cary, one of the leading cartographic engravers, publishers and globe-makers of the period, perhaps best known for his English county atlases.
This is the second state of the map, which was first published in the 1789 edition of Camden’s Britannia edited by the antiquary Richard Gough, and reprinted with minor revisions by Stockdale.
