First edition of this early English road atlas.
The scroll-form strip maps show the highways and major roads. A great deal of information is included on the maps including mileages, local details, directions, with cross-references to tables. The maps were first published by John Senex in 1719, for the new work Kitchin has reworked the plates adding new information.
