Uncoloured town plan of Oxford from David Loggan’s “Oxonia Illustrata”, a richly illustrated work on the architecture and topography of the University and its surroundings published in 1675. The map, which lays out a bird’s eye view of the late seventeenth century city, is generally considered the most beautiful plan of Oxford. Superbly engraved in great detail, it shows the colleges, churches, important buildings, green places and streets of the city; many of which are identified in two keys (one with 50 entries in English and a duplicate in Latin with 31). The map is decorated with an ornate dedication cartouche and a view of the east prospect of Oxford. Blank verso. The map has some repaired tears and marginal chipping, minor tape staining from old repairs and has been backed in very thin archival tissue for conservation purposes; otherwise, a strong, dark impression in very good condition. 41.5 cm x 53 cm
