Cambridgeshire Antique Map by Seller after John Speed. Grose c1787

by Seller, John

Antique Map of Cambridgeshire in the late 18th century - from the "Supplement to the Antiquities of England and Wales" by Francis Grose Esq F.R.S. published in London between 1773 and 1787. Francis Grose retouched the plates that John Seller used in his "Anglia Contracta" (published in London circa 1697). Seller re-engraved larger, the county maps from John Speed's pocket atlas circa 1676.

This finely detailed map is printed above interesting historical information of the County. This continues over the page. The engraved map is not quite aligned with the text, but the combination of text and map convey a fascinating story.

From the tall edition of this work,  the page is of heavy grade hand-made paper, and there are wide margins around the engravings. Map size is 125 x 150mm (5 x 6 inches). Page size is 320 x 240mm (12.5 x 9.5 inches).
