Charming road map from this very scarce work, that is rarely seen on the market. The map is very similar to Ogilby's road maps in style and decoration, but on a reduced scale. Beginning at mile 70 from London, the road winds its way through villages, woods, hills, and parks to the city of Lincoln. Includes a nice plan of Lincoln. Very decorative chart with scroll-like panels and eleven compass roses.
