THOMAS BADESLADE and WILLIAM HENRY TOMS

County maps distinctive by the panel listing the main towns with their market and fair days

Thomas Badeslade was principally a surveyor and engineer working with his son Henry working on river improvements and fens reclamation. He started drawing maps of the Fens and waterways and was instrumental in a number of works in the first half of the 18th century. For county map collectors his one work was a series of very distinctive maps he drew for Chorographia Brittanniae engraved and published by W. H. Toms.

Chorographia Britanniae or a New Set of Maps of all the Counties in England and Wales...

Despite the title there are no individual Welsh county maps in this atlas. Wales is features on two Maps North Wales and South Wales. The design for this series is unique in that each map has down the left hand side a panel which lists the main towns of the in the county and their market and fair days. An interesting addition. Beneath each map is the publisher's imprint and collectors will find specimens bearing the date 1741 and other bearing the date 1742. The 1741 maps show fewer place names. Although specimens of this atlas with early hand colouring do exist this popular handy sized tome was mainly published uncoloured so on many specimens the colouring on maps will have been done more recently.

It is interesting to note that the atlas was intended for the use of his Majesty King George I for his intended tour through England and Wales. He died on June 11th, 1727. The dedication is to Frederick Prince of Wales, son of George II born February 1st, 1707 and who died on March 31st, 1751 at Kew.

Dating

The majority of maps you will find from this atlas will have a centre fold. You will also find specimens with early hand colouring as well as uncoloured ones. And also of course specimens that have later hand colouring. You will find specimens dated 1741 and 1742. Usually the maps dated 1741 have fewer place names than those dated 1742. But I have come across specimens dated 1741 which have the increased number of place names.

This is illustrations below show the map of County Durham with the fewer place names dated 1741, the increased number of place names dated 1741 and another dated 1742

The Earlier 1741 Edition

The illustrations below come from a copy of Chorographia Britannia in my own collection. Although the titlepage is date 1742 all the maps bear the date of 1741 and have fewer place names. The maps all have early hand colouring. They also have large blank margins and no centre fold which is unusual.

I have been buying and selling antique maps since the early 1960's during which time I had a gallery in Watergate Street, Chester for 30 years. I am now able to offer through my websites a personal service to map and print collectors.
