Category:England Exactly Described (Thomas Taylor, 1715)

English: 38 old maps of England folded and bound in a leather book. This appears to be England Exactly Described published by Thomas Taylor in 1715.

"Taylor was also responsible for the publication of several maps including England exactly described [...] in 1715 containing maps of the English counties which had been issued previously in Speed's Maps Epitomiz'd in 1681 and in other works." (

Most seem to have been printed from copper plates made by Richard Blome in the 1660s and 1670s. The plates were modified and Bloom's name was removed from many of the plates before this set of maps was printed at a later date. Most of the plates measured 9 x 7-1/2 inches. The book was found in New Jersey, USA.
