36 36 : Meijer, Pieter 1757


Meijer's maps were copied from the small maps of Emanuel Bowen that appeared in" The Natural History of England", published 1755-63. They were included in "Algemeene Oefenschoole", a translation of " The Natural History of England", published in two volumes dated 1763 1nd 1770. The maps have dates ranging from 1757 to 1770, suggesting that they may have been issued in parts with the earlier issues concurrent with the work from which they were copied.

Wiltshire was the fourth map in the series, sharing the earliest date of 1757 with Devonshire, Dorset and Somerset.

Maps in this series are much rarer than their Bowen counterparts and very difficult to find.
