by John Cary Engraver 1818. from Cary's New English Atlas published by J.Cary Engraver & Map seller 1818.  21 1/4" x 19".  fine original wash hand colouring.

Shows the five large meres: Trundle, Brik, Ugg, Ramsey and the largest, Whittlesea, which extended to around 3000 acres - plus Benwick Mere, just over the border in Cambridgeshire. By the mid nineteenth century all were under the plough. A few very faint creases do not detract from a beautifully engraved and coloured example from one of the finest map makers of his day.
