Herefordshire Maps 1577-1800 **KEEP**

£60.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This book details every known surviving map of Herefordshire between 1577 and 1800, the latter date being conveniently nine years after the founding of the Ordinance Survey and one year before the publication of their first map (of Kent). It includes, therefore, all the printed maps of the county as a whole, as well as manuscript maps, usually estate maps, of small areas within the county. Most of these are available for inspection in libraries (both public and private) and record offices, but some remain in private hands.

The first quarter of the book details the background to map-making and provides an introduction to many of the map-makers and their work, both well known names in the field such as Christopher Saxton, John Speed. John Rocque and Herefordshire's own Isaac Taylor, as well as lesser known figures who may have only produced the occasional map. There then follows a gazetteer of printed maps and one of estate maps, providing a wealth of information as to how the map is presented and what information it contains.

This book is something for which lovers of maps and researchers alike will be most grateful.

The first Logaston Press book was published in 1985 and since then they've produced more than 250 titles.
