A VERY RARE pictorial view of the county with foreground vignettes of local scenery. With Brecknokshire and Radnor in the foreground and Pembrokeshire in the background. It was first published in George Bickham’s fully engraved ‘British Monarchy’ c.1743. Of extreme rarity, only seven examples of the atlas are recorded. The maps are highly collected for their distinctiveness. Below the title is a dedication to his Royal Highness George Prince of Wales. Bickham was a renowned author and engraver of works on calligraphy. The accompanying descriptive text shows well his skill with script. Provenance: Doreen Green 1997; private English collection.
