Cowley 1744

The Geography of England

Only towns, with approximated roads and rivers.

Most maps, including Essex, copied from Morden's 1701 small maps.

A short-lived atlas, as it had less information than competitors, such as The Agreeable Historian or the English Traveller.

Displayed scale of 10 miles = 27mm, or 9.4 miles/inch; scale actual = 10.2 miles/inch, or 1:650,000.
