Book Description

"RUTLAND SHIRE' by Thomas Read (John Rocque) c.1769 A charming map of the county of Rutland which was published in P. Russell's England Displayed. (London: 1769). It is interesting to note that maps from this publication are often attributed to John Rocque, who was a renown Georgian cartographer of Huguenot descent. Thomas Read, the original printer, drove their production. Simply executed with compass and scale defined. Original copperplate engraving with later light hand colouring and stronger outlining of the county. The map is in excellent condition with good margins. Printed area is 19.5cm x 16cm approx.
