Description Large engraved map hand-coloured in outline, 81 x 124 cm, dissected into 32 sections and laid on linen; folding into original green marbled paper slipcase with mounted publisher's label. Linen worn through in a couple of places at folds; slipcase rubbed and worn; else in excellent clean state. 18th century copies of this famous map are rare. The best of the London maps published by the firm was the 'New and Accurate Plan' to a scale of 61/2 inches to the mile. First published in 1787, of which at least twenty editions were issued between then and 1825. Unlike many other map-makers Cary was at considerable pains to bring each edition up to date.
