Additional DescriptionMore Details

John Seller’s original plates, first published in Anglia Contracta 1695, were acquired by the antiquary Francis Grose as a supplement to his work nearly 100 years after they were originally engraved; the titles were re-worked to remove Seller’s imprint and make them look more up-to-date. Minor revisions, mainly of spelling, were made to the maps themselves.
