Westmorland
Westmorland
Printed map. "By Robt. Morden". Three visual scales. Probably from Camden & Morden's Camden's Britannia..., published 1695. Described in Chubb, Printed Maps in the Atlases of Great Britain and Ireland, entry CXIII, p. 93-96: "Fifty maps including the counties of England, maps of North and South Wales, Scotland, Ireland, and 'The Smaller Islands in the British Ocean.' Most of the maps bear the name Robt. Morden. Sutton Nicholls, and John Sturt appear, as the engravers, on a few of them, and as others are similar in execution, it is probable that they were also engraved by them. They are plain at the back. Gibson, in his preface, says 'The Maps are all new engrav'd, either according to Surveys never before publish'd, or according to such as have been made and printed since Saxton and Speed. Where actual Surveys could be had, they were purchas'd at any rate; and for the rest, one of the best Copies extant was sent to some of the most knowing Gentlemen in each County, with a request to supply the defects, rectifie the positions, and correct the false spellings. And that nothing might be wanting to render them as complete and accurate as might be, this whole business was committed to Mr. Robert Morden, a person of known abilities in these matters, who took care to revise them, to see the slips of the Engraver mended, and the corrections, return'd out of the several Counties, duly inserted. Upon the whole, we need now scruple to affirm, that they are by much the fairest and most correct of any that have yet appear'd,' etc." Acquired as part of the Banks Collection.
