WILLDEY, George. [Uncommon map of Cambridgeshire from a Saxton county atlas]
Cambridge-Shire and the Great Level of ye Fenns extending into the Adjacent Shires, according to Surveys as it is now drained at the Charges of ye R.t Hon.ble W. Earl of Bedford, & ye other Proprieters by S.r Jonas Moore, &c. London: Thomas Jefferys, c.1749. Coloured. 404 x 480mm.
An uncommon map of Cambridgeshire, reduced from the 16-sheet map by Sir Jonas Moore, published in Jefferys' edition of the Saxton county atlas. In the original Saxton edition of 1579 Cambridge was one of five counties on one plate. Philip Lea had Moore's map copied for his 1689 edition, but when George Willdey bought Lea's stock in 1730 the plate was missing, so he had this close copy engraved. For his edition Jefferys had Willdey's imprint removed. SHIRLEY: BM Atlases T.SAX-1k.
