A rare map published by the famous German firm of cartographic publishers Homann Heirs which was founded by Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) in 1702 in Nuremberg. His successor was his son Johann Christoph Homann (1703-30) who died young. The business was continued as Homann Heirs by several heirs and through several generations until it closed c.1852. This map of England and Wales is dated 1805 above. At this time the firm was in the hands of Georg Christoph Franz and Friedrich Albrecht Monath.
