A very fine example of one of the rarest series of English county maps - Middlesex by Pieter Meijer - 1759. The map's engraved area is 172x195mm. In its original uncoloured state, in immaculate condition with wide margins. One of a series of maps published by the Dutch cartographer Pieter Meijer, closely based upon the maps of Emanuel Bowen and Benjamin Martin. The latter are not too difficult to find but the Meijer copies are extremely rare.
