Notes

A new state of the map by John Ogilby and William Morgan (first published in 1678), with Ogilby’s name and date removed and Lea’s imprint inserted, but Morgan’s dedication to Arthur, Earl of Essex, retained. By this point the plate had been acquired by Philip Lea who published it in this edition of the Saxton atlas of c. 1689.
