Cornwall

By JENNER, Thomas

c1657, 1657. Dimensions : 100 x 100 mm. Actual map (triangular) : 75 x 74 mm. Staining and worm track to the lower part of the text, although the engraved map very good with a good plate mark. Miniature map, first published in 1643. This edition is from " A Book of the Names of all Parishes," published with text. It is suggested that this series of maps were issued to be used by the two armies during the English Civil War, and possibly the hast that this was done, would account for the number of rather quaint mistakes in the engraving of the map; for instance St. Agnes and ( Zennor ) have been transposed in each others place, St. Ives is located just above St. Agnes, and Padstow is found in the position of Hayle. Also the name of St. Michael's Mount has been engraved backwards, suggesting the engraver was copying directly onto the copper plate. The first edition is distinguished from this edition by the lack of text printed beneath the actual engraved map. Quixley, " Antique Maps of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly," No. 10. Good. Map.
