The "Geography Rectified" pocket world atlas was Robert Morden's earliest important work published in 1688 with a few later editions up to c1700. His best known work however, was the series of English county maps he produced to illustrate the Edmund Gibson editions of Camden's Britannia, published in 1695 and again in 1722, with several further rarer editions up to 1772. A series of smaller county maps were published in 1701 and later. No extensive survey was carried out as such but the previous Saxton & Kip (or Hole) maps were updated by whatever information could be found. Morden also produced a variety of other cartographic works including globes, geographical playing cards and large scale maps, notably of London.
