Item Information

Title:
A new most accurate & complete map of all the direct and the principal crossroads in England and Wales, carefully corrected from late surveys : with the distances by the mile stones, and other most exact admensurations between town and town
Description:
This map is a mid-18th-century equivalent of a modern road map, showing the major roadways and distances in miles between towns in England and Wales. Latitude and longitude are not shown on this map. When navigating by horse and carriage or by foot, accuracy of mileage and general direction was all that was needed, as opposed to the precise co-ordinate placement that was so crucial for seafaring navigators.
