Information

Made for travellers on horseback, stagecoach or foot, strip maps gave the user information on not only the route of a journey but also the key villages on route and public houses too to make the planning of a journey much easier!

This map, made by Thomas Gardner in 1719 and included in his work "A Pocket-Guide to the English Traveller, Thomas Gardner, 1719" was based on a larger scale road map study of the roads of Britain entitled "Britannia" published by John Ogilby in 1675.  Ogilby's stduy was too large to be carried so Garnder was the first of a number of individuals to produce smaller studies that could be easily carried whilst travelling.

This fine example is engraved by hand and hand tinted.

Presented within a lined mount , behind glass in a later frame.

Condition - as per image. Some foxing, dust mark and staining to the mount.
