From Chorographia Britanniæ Or A Set of Maps of all the Counties in England and Wales. London: W.H. Toms, 1742. First edition (dated in map 1741). Engravings by W.H. Toms. Ca. 5 1/2 x 5 3/4. Very good condition, except as noted. Denver.

A wonderful series of small British county maps from the middle of the eighteenth century. Thomas Badeslade (fl. 1719-1745) was a surveyor, engineer, and author, and these maps are based upon his surveys. The images were engraved by W.H. Toms, who also published the atlas. Each county map is strongly engraved with good information presented, often with an unusual orientation. The map itself is accompanied by a panel of text with information about the county. Unusual and interesting eighteenth century county maps.
