Road Maps

Road maps of England and Wales shown in a strip form first appeared in 1675 with the publications of John Ogilby's Britannia. There then followed a number of series of road maps by a number of mapmakers. They were smaller than the folio maps by Ogilby so that they could be carried by the early 18th century traveller but were based on Ogilby's amazing survey of the roads.
