OVERTON, Henry. [Rare map of Nottinghamshire]
A New Map of Nottingham-Shire with the Post & Cross Roads, & other remarks according to the latest & best observations. 1714. London: Overton, 1713. Original colour. 345 x 490mm.
A scarce map of Nottinghamshire, from Overton's county atlas, "England Fully Described in a Compleatt Sett of Mapps of ye County's of England and Wales". It is unusual in that the map takes up less than half the area: a large plan of Nottingham fills the top left half of the sheet, not based on that by Speed but apparently a new survey. Under that is the title cartouche and a text box with a few statistics and sundry information, ending "the most noted rivers are the Trent and Erwash, its cheif Comõdities the best Liquorice, Plaster like that of Paris, Malt".
