COLE, G. & ROPER, John : DURHAM.
London : Vernor, Hood & Sharpe, 1805. A nice early impression of a useful and attractive antique map of the county that remained in print for over fifty years. Interesting in grading the roads, locating archaeological sites, etc. Engraved by John Roper (fl.1792-1810) from a draught by Cole, probably the surveyor George Cole of Soho. Originally produced to accompany the part-work “Beauties of England and Wales” (London : 1801-1818).

MORDEN, Robert, fl.1668-1703 : EPISCOPATUS DUNELMENSIS VULGO THE BISHOPRICK OF DURHAM BY ROBT. MORDEN.
[London] : sold by Abel Swale, Awnsham & Iohn Churchil, . A rare separately published state of the first issue of Morden’s map of the county, originally produced for the 1695 edition of “Camden’s Britannia”, but here dissected, mounted on linen, and folding into (eighteenth-century) marbled guards, with a manuscript label. Morden’s maps from this series have not previously been recorded in this form. On their first appearance they were advertised as being “much the fairest and most correct of any that have yet appear’d” and the help of “knowing gentlemen” in each part of the country had been sought “to supply the defects, rectifie the positions, and correct false spellings”.

SELLER, John, 1632-1697 : THE BISHOPRICK OF DURHAM.
[London : 1694?]. A charming and rare small map of County Durham by John Seller. Originally produced for a set of maps which first appeared under the title “Anglia Contracta”, dated to between 1689 and 1694 by Skelton and generally ascribed to somewhere near the latter date. The maps in their original form were subsequently reissued a number of times between 1696 and 1711, with the present example dating from no later than 1697.
