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. This charming map shows the roads from Exeter to the sea at Dorchester, and from Plymouth to Dartmouth, passing all manner of small towns and churches along the way. Very decorative chart with scroll-like panels and eight compass roses.
