Robert Morden's (1650 - 1703) Map of Norfolk, published in William Camden's work 'Britannia' in 1695.
This is the first edition of this map from one of the earliest sets of maps to show roads. A copper engraving with hand colouring. Folded originally to fit the atlas.
Between about 1675 and his death in 1703, Morden was based in London. His output was large and varied. His best-known maps were first published in a new edition of Camden's "Britannia" in 1695, and subsequently reissued several times throughout the 18th century. These maps were based on new information from each county, and were newly engraved. Each had a decorated cartouche. Morden also produced in 1701 a series of smaller county maps often known as Miniature Mordens.
