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 Ipswich, the road winds its way through villages, woods, hills, over bridges, and parks to the city of Cromer with a nice plan of Norwich. Decorative chart with scroll-like panels and six compass roses.
