37 maps, Yorkshire map omitted. Leicestershire and Rutland are on one map.

These tiny maps, doubtless copied from the playing-card of 1590 and now known as the "Thumb-nail" maps, engraved in the bottom right-hand corner of a plate measuring 4 X 4 ins. They show a few towns or castles (which are indicated by the initial letters in capitals) and rivers. Lines, showing the points of the compass, radiate from the map below the map, an open pair of dividers measures off the scale of 10 miles. Outside the border. The major portion of the plates is devoted to a triangular table of distances, prepared in the manner invented by John Norden. The title is in the square formed by the lines of the table, in the top left-hand corner of the plate. Along the top is a list of towns the border is formed by a single line.
The name and address of Mathew Simons, in the title of the work, appears to replace an earlier one. The maps were reprinted in 1636 and possibly later.

The former "Thumb-nail" map, scale, plate number and a part of the border have been erased and a larger map in an inclined position has been squeezed into the triangular space below the distance table. It now shows rivers, towns (with the names spelt in full) and some hills. A pair of dividers measures off the new scale of 10 miles (= 7 /16ins.).
The larger map was reprinted in 1657, 1662, 1668 and 1677, and in addition, at various times in the "Direction", etc., with the title-page still dated 1643, by Jenner, and without date, by J. Garrett, who succeeded Jenner in 1676.

This work is better known by its later name, the " Quartermaster's Map," and was a close copy, cartographically, of Saxton's general map of England and Wales of 1583, and shows rivers, bridges, lakes, towns and principal villages. On the left, the title and scale in an ornamental cartouche. A single line forms the border. Jenner reprinted the maps in 1671, by Garrett in 1676 and 1687, and by J. Rocque in 1752.
J. Rocque, when publishing the reprint in 1752, stated that the map was originally produced at the orders of Oliver Cromwell, for the use of the Parliamentary Army. Sir H. G. Fordham, however, considered it was produced simply as a commercial venture of Thomas Jenner to meet an emergency demand, as he failed to find any foundation for Rocque's statement.

(116). Saxton, C. A possible reprint of No. 1.

The engraved plates for a number of counties were undoubtedly prepared for an edition in 1665. If they were not actually published, that might be easily explained by the confusion and mortality caused by the Plague in that year. A suggestion that the stock of newly printed maps was destroyed in the Great Fire in the following year is equally reasonable as an explanation of the non-existence of any copies. Lea's atlas of 1665, Whitaker was able to construct a state of 19 maps. Listed in Shelton's Bibliography, page122.

In (A PACK OF PLAYING CARDS) SOLD BY JOHN LENTHALL, STATIONER AT THE TALBOT AGAINST ST DUNSTANS CHURCH IN FLEET STREET LONDON WHERE ARE SOLD THE SEVERAL SORTS OF NEW PICTORAL CARDS. (c.1724.)

Mr. Melbert B. Cary, Jr. (a well-known collector of playing cards) of New York, possesses 15 playing cards and two explanatory cards of still another series of geographical playing cards, with English and Welsh county maps.
They are palpably copies of the second edition of Morden’s series of 1676 (No. 131). which, however, show that the dimensions and scales are the same as in Morden’s series. Place names in the new series are in rather larger letters, but the most easily identifiable feature is that “ Bredth “ is now spelt Breadth “ in the statistical compartment at the bottom of the card.
Jolin Lenthall was in business at the above address at this time, 1724. He was previously in partnership with W. Warter, who in his turn had been in business alone, all at the same address.

The county maps with a topographical description were published alphabetically in weekly parts, 1743-46. Only 29 county maps in three volumes have been located, up to the county of Shropshire. The fourth volume does not appear to have been traced. Volume four must have at some time been published because John Rocque was able to acquire the complete set of 52 plates in about 1750, updating the maps with an altered scale bar. The backs are plain.

In (THE LARGE ENGLISH ATLAS BY E. BOWEN AND T. KITCHIN. PUBLISHED BY JOHN HINTON, 1750—52). Large folio.

The famous maps, the largest of the counties to date and incorporating many new details, but also introducing some curious errors. The degrees of longitude (West of London) are about 2 degrees out and the main body of the counties are too wide from east to wast. They show towns with their market days, villages (with indications to show whether rectory or vicarage), religious houses, charity schools, castles, hundreds, hills, parks, forests, sands, meres, rivers, brooks, post roads with measured distances between the towns, and several other roads now shown for the first time. Numerous descriptive notes are scattered around the map. A circular compass indicator. The title with the imprint below, scale, “Explanation” (of the symbols on the map), and the dedication. The titles have a pictorial surround, The border is formed by a thick line with a double inner line marked off into degrees and minutes of latitude and longitude. The backs are plain. These county maps were first published at various dates from 1749 and the issue was probably not quite completed until nearly 1760. Therefore earlier bound collections are incomplete and also, lack the title-page. The one being published by Hinton, could not have been later than 1752. It was reprinted in 1753, 1760, 1763, 1765, 1767, 1777, 1780, 1781, 1785, 1787 and sometime after 1794.

A circular compass indicator. the title in an ornamental cartouche showing the produce of the county in the foreground; centre, the scale ; The borders are formed by a single thick line with a double inner line marked off into degrees and minutes of latitude and longitude. Below the border, the imprint. The maps are ruled with lines at intervals of 10 minutes of a degree. The backs are plain.
It was reprinted about 1777—80, possibly both dates, and again about 1794.
