Description :Rare and important plan of Coventry by T. Jefferys.
A large and detailed plan of Coventry, engraved and published by Thomas Jefferys in 1750 after a survey of Samuel Bradford in 1748 and 1749. Oriented with north to the top of the page, the plan is dedicated by Jefferys to 'His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.' A title cartouche appears in the upper left corner, one large vignette with a description of the town, 'a view of the Cross', a mileage scale, and a cartouche centered at the bottom line. With the engraved address of Jefferys: 'Publish'd according to Act of Parliament March 29, 1750. by T. Jefferys ye corner of St. Martins Lane near Charing Cross. London.'
This is the first state of the map, printed and published just months after the survey as a separate map. We only could locate a handful of copies of this map in British Libraries. ¤
Condition : Evidence of two vertical and one horizontal old folds, a small tear in centerfold backed. Excellent conditions for a separately published map.
