Complete.

2nd Edition, published within two or three months of the first edition of June 1742, the revised imprints of the maps engraved around September 1742 have not yet been added. This is an early variant of the second edition, containing only 7 revised maps; Cambridgeshire, Cumberland, Durham, Kent, Lancashire, Middlesex and Surrey. Sussex (first state), has been pasted to a dedication page before binding and Lancashire (second state), has been added at a later date presumably to replace a lost or missing map.

Contents clean, all maps with good margins with very few splits to centrefolds, as often found with this work. A very good unrestored example of the first pocket county atlas produced in the 18th century. read less
