69 John Cary 1806

 

John Cary’s Traveller’s Companion appeared in 1789 (55) but most of the maps, including Devon, were re-engraved twice: in 1806 and in 1822 (92). Although this 1806 version of Devon looks very similar to the earlier engraving, mileages between Honiton and Collumpton are new, Oakhampton and other towns are not horizontal, and the road SW of Samford Spiney is moved north across the river. The 1822 edition is entirely new both in format and engraving.

 

Size 130 x 94 mm including title.                                                                                                                           Statute Miles  (10 = 12.5 mm).
