THE ONLY KNOWN EXAMPLE. Thomas Millward and Bispham Dickinson were publishers and booksellers active in London c.1710-40. Shirley cited only one known example of the first state recorded on a microfilm at the British Library and found in an example of a Saxton-Willdey atlas. The map is diagrammatic, displaying the roads emanating from London. The distances between towns are noted and each county is highlighted in early colour. This school of mapping concentrates on recording the roads in bold format. The main title is displayed in an ornate cartouche upper right, a further title appears across the top. A description of some of the roads is found below. There are very few ever published of England and Wales, the majority were separately published and are extremely rare.
