Ublished in Camden's Britannia by Abel Swale, Awnsham and John Churchill, London 1722. A fine copper engraved original antique map of Hampshire in the favoured large paper edition with wide margins. A highly detailed map with decorative title cartouche and two scales of miles.

Greatly enhanced with attractive later hand colouring. A tiny perforation has been repaired verso (Barton Stacy Hundred - see close up image), which is barely visible, otherwise fine condition. 16.5" x 14" (420mm x 360mm) map area only, with good margins beyond.

Printed on hand laid paper which remains stable and robust, blank verso. Please see also close up images. The "Geography Rectified" pocket world atlas was Robert Morden's earliest important work published in 1688 with a few later editions up to c1700.

His best known work however, was the series of English county maps he produced to illustrate the Edmund Gibson editions of Camden's Britannia, published in 1695 and again in 1722, with several further rarer editions up to 1772. A series of smaller county maps were published in 1701 and later. No extensive survey was carried out as such but the previous Saxton & Kip (or Hole) maps were updated by whatever information could be found. Morden also produced a variety of other cartographic works including globes, geographical playing cards and large scale maps, notably of London. A GENUINE ANTIQUE MAP GUARANTEED OVER 290 YEARS OLD FROM LINDISFARNE PRINTS.
