Small, strip-style road map from this very scarce work. The map is very similar to Ogilby's maps in style and decoration, but on a reduced scale. Beginning at mile 61 from London, the road winds its way through villages, woods, hills, and parks to the city of Lichfield. Includes nice plans of Coventrey and Lichfield. Very decorative chart with scroll-like panels and six compass roses.
