SELLER, John, 1632-1697 : A MAPP OF DORSETSHIRE.
London : John Seller, [1694?]. A charming and rare small map of Dorsetshire by John Seller, here in its earlier state before the addition of the two captions explaining the numerals (which give miles west and south from London). This set of maps 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 presence here of Seller’s address at the Royal Exchange, premises he is not known to have occupied later than 1686, suggests that the maps may actually have been engraved a little earlier.
