Handsome road map in the pictorial style pioneered by Ogilby. The map begins in High Barnet and proceeds in a northerly direction on the Holy Head Road to Oakeham. The pictorial title cartouche includes a hunter with his dogs in pursuit of a stag. Beautifully color and on fine quality paper. A tiny bit of discoloration in the margins, still very fine.
