The first edition of this second series of John Cary’s ‘Traveller’s Companion’ was published in 1806. In the interim issues had appeared dated 1810, 1812 and 1814. This 1817 example bears the same title with just the date in the imprint altered. All the maps now bear imprints with similar date and there are alterations to the detail on the maps. The list of Market and Borough Towns at the end is expanded and now fills the fifth page. The ensuing list of Routes is also reset. There is now no imprint of the printer. Chubb (1927) 280; Fordham (1925a) pp. 39; Smith ‘The Map Collector’ 43 pp. 40-47.
