Meijer 1763

Kliene Atlas

Dutch work in 2 volumes, dated 1763 & 1770.

Whole thing is a translation of the text of The Natural History of England and copies of Bowen's maps.

Essex is in volume 2, but is dated as 1763. Unusually for this time, Meijer acknowledges Bowen in the cartouche of each map.

Displayed scale of 12 miles = 32.3mm, or 9.4 miles/inch; actual scale = 8.8 miles/inch, or 1:560,000.
