ANTIQUE MAP: MIDDLESEX.

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).
Copper line engraving on paper. Original hand colour. Engraved surface 146 x 92mm (approx. 5-3/4” x 3-5/8”). Small and faint mark in upper blank margin, but overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map.
