Description
  • Publication Date: c1760
  • Title: England And Wales
  • Cartographer: ROCQUE, JOHN
  • Publisher: ROBERT SAYER
  • Height: 45.5
  • Width: 39

    "drawn from the most accurate surveys containing all the cities, boroughs, market towns & villages, in which are included all the improvements and observations both astronomical and topographical which have been made by members of the Royal Society, and others down to the present year. The whole corrected & improv'd by John Rocque, chorographer to His Majesty." Along bottom margin, "Printed by Robt. Sayer map & printseller at the Golden Buck in Fleet Street." Dramatic large four sheet map, from Sayer's large English Atlas of 1760. Rocque was Topographer to the Prince of Wales and attained his new title after the coronation in 1760. He flourished from 1734-62. Sayer, a famous and prolific mapmaker, was taken into partnership by John Overton in 1745. After his death in 1752 Sayer continued on his own forming several associations until his own death in 1792. His association with Rocque began in 1753. A handsome production, the map is decorated with many small ships at sea and a large patriotic elaborate rococco cartouche of the 'attributes' of Britain. A helmeted Brittanica offers the seated King a cornucopia of coins, cannon, ships, bales. A scribe with ledger and other figures historiate the scene Skillfully joined and probably sold separately, with delicate outline coloring.
