A Mapp of the County of
HUNTINGDON
by Richard Blome.
Published London circa 1735 by Thomas Bakewell in "England Exactly Described".
A fine copper engraved county map of Huntingdonshire. Features a scale of miles and a dedication from Blome to "Charles Earle of Manchester Viscount Mandevill, Baron of Kimbolton &c". The somewhat more scarce Bakewell edition was published in a larger book than the usual Taylor Blomes and hence has only a single fold as opposed to the three usually found.
Some light browning as seen and some splitting and wear along the original centre fold has been reinforced verso. Left hand margin cropped as issued.
Sheet size approx. 10" x 8" (260mm x 195mm) on hand laid paper.
Richard Blome ( 1635-1705) was an active and prominent map publisher in 1670's London. He drew much contemporary crticism for blatant plagiarism but this did not seem to impede his success. His notable achievements included the "Brittania" and "The Geographical Description of the Four Parts of the World". At least in his "Speed's Maps Epitomiz'd" he gave credit to his sources . Thomas Taylor was later to re issue Blome's English county maps in 1715 in a slightly smaller format in "England Exactly Described". A further edition of "England Exactly Described" was published circa 1735 by Thomas Bakewell.
