A pocket sized fox hunting map ‘exhibiting the direct and cross Roads, Woods and the Fox Coverts, Canals, Towns, Villages, Hamlets, Parks and Seats of the Nobility & Gentry’. Charles Oakden is not listed in Tooley’s dictionary of mapmakers or in the British Book Trade Index. Although the advert pasted on the verso describes him as a land surveyor, the imprint states that he published the map in September 1830 and that it was sold by the geographer James Wyld in London. The whole is engraved by Sidney Hall (1788?-1831) who died just months after publication in early 1831. Deadman & Brooks (2010) pp. 186-7; Eden (1975).
