Ogilby 1689


Compared to the 1678 original version, Ogilby's name has been removed but Morgan's survives (Ogilby had died in 1676); this version was used by Lea in his "Saxton Atlas" of 1689 (ie as well as the Saxton-Lea map).

Displayed scale of 10 miles = 85mm, or 3.0 miles/inch; scale actual = 3.1 miles/inch, or 1:195,000.

Apart from the names in the cartouche, little has changed since the 1678 original.
