This is an attractive map of England and Wales. Great detail is given to identify rivers, lakes, the shoreline, cities, towns, and roads/paths. The counties are noted as well. The title cartouche is flanked by two female figures; Britannia holding her shield and another supporting a sailing vessel, likely signifying the British naval ambition of the time. It is from A Complete System Of Geography, and was engraved by Thomas Kitchin.
