MORDEN, Robert, fl.1668-1703 [& MOLL, Herman, fl.1678-1732] : BARKSHIRE.
[London : ca.1720]. A most attractive map of Berkshire – with a neatly worked curtain title-piece and the upper border ruled, in Morden’s characteristic fashion, not in degrees but in minutes of real time from London. 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 and subjected to minor revision by Herman Moll – and the present edition (with Moll’s additions) is dated to about 1720.
