OGILBY, John (1600-1676). Britannia, Volume the First: or, an Illustration of the Kingdom of England and Dominion of Wales . London: by the author, 1675.
OGILBY, John (1600-1676). Britannia, Volume the First: or, an Illustration of the Kingdom of England and Dominion of Wales . London: by the author, 1675. Volume 1 [all published], 2° (414 x 259mm). Title in red and black, engraved frontispiece by W. Hollar after F. Barlow, engraved general map of England and Wales and 100 double-page strip road maps with cartouches, engraved initials and headpieces. (General map detached, also with some stains and tear along fold, title repaired at margins with slight loss to double rule, first leaf of dedication repaired at corner, map 13 with tear touching on border, maps 23, 35 and 72 with hole at margin, small paper fault in Hh2, light worming at bottom margin of maps 90-95.) Contemporary speckled calf, new gilt spine retaining old label, marbled edges (covers rubbed at extremities, inner hinges repaired). Provenance : W.C. Priestley (20th-century bookplate). FIRST EDITION of Ogilby's famous road book, the second issue with no dedication to Archbishop Gilbert and catchword ‘132’ on preliminary D1r. ‘The first survey of the roads of England and Wales ... [the strip road maps] show the main roads only, with the cross-roads indicated. The distances are shown in miles along the roads, and the villages and mansions named, and in some cases the names of the residents are given’ (Chubb). Although a leaf appears to have been torn out between *1 and D1, leaving a printed stub, the preliminaries are as called for by Chubb, the history of London having been reset on four leaves instead of seven. Chubb pp. 84-87; Wing O-168.
