Oxford Shire Map  by   Robert Morden,

First published      1695 Size    418 x 358 mm Medium     Copper engraved with hand colouring Robert Morden : d. 1703. Morden a bookseller and publisher plus an accomplished geographer and cartographer. Best known for his maps issued in 1695 in Gibson's revised edition of 'Camden's Brittannia' engraved by Sutton Nichols. William Camden (1551-1623) was a historian and antiquary whose works were reprinted and published over a period of 200 years. The original Latin text was first translated by Gibson in 1695. Morden was employed to replace the outdated maps by Saxton, engraved by Kip and Hole. He based his maps on manuscript sources plus the surveys of Ogilby and Morgan, seller, Palmer and the coastal charts of Cpt. Greenville Collins. His  contribution to cartography was the showing of longitudes measured from the meridian of St. Paul's Cathedral given in the form of time in minutes at the top of the map in Roman numerals and at the bottom in degrees. This was done to clarify local times that were taken from the sun as there was no national standard time. These maps were the first to show the roads based on Ogilby's earlier work of 1675, and included 3 scales to cover the various scales used in different parts of the country. **On the 1695 edition of this map the village of Forrest Hill is spelt Forris Hill and is then corrected to Forrest Hill in 1722, but you can still vaguely see the dot of the erased i.** £205 framed inc delivery  substantially cheaper collected (£155)
