CARY, John, 1755-1835 : MIDDLESEX.
London : J. Cary, 1806. An attractive miniature map by John Cary – what are now the northern and western London suburbs are portrayed as a series of country villages spread out around the capital. Sir George Fordham wrote of Cary as the prototype of the modern mapmaker, “the most prominent and successful exponent of his time”, the cartographer who “first combined care and beauty of design, with something really approximate to geographical accuracy”. Originally produced for “Cary’s Traveller’s Companion” (London : 1806).

MORDEN, Robert, fl.1668-1703 [& MOLL, Herman, fl.1678-1732] : MIDDLESEX.
[London : ca.1720]. A most attractive map of Middlesex – the metropolitan county with Highgate and “Hampsteed” on their hills north of the city, and the riverside villages of Chelsea, Fulham, Chiswick, Hammersmith, Twickenham, Hampton, Sunbury and Shepperton strung out along the Thames. Although probably engraved in the early 1690s, the maps in this series were not published until 1701. After Robert Morden’s death in 1703 the plates were reworked by Herman Moll – and the present edition (with Moll’s additions) is dated to about 1720.
