Uncoloured strip map of the coaching route from London to Marlborough taken from the first edition of Ogilby’s opus entitled “Britannia”, published in 1675. The atlas, which contains 100 maps of coaching routes in England and Wales, was the first to use the statute mile of 1,760 yards and utilise a scale of one inch to the mile throughout. Roughly approximating the route of the A4/M4, the 75-mile route starts in London and travels west/south-west through the towns of Hammersmith, Brentford, Hounslow, Maidenhead, Reading, Newbury, and Hungerford terminating in Marlborough. In common with all maps in the atlas, the title cartouche in the top centre lists details of the route and is decorated with a pastoral scene and the royal coat of arms. Blank verso. A fine dark impression in excellent condition. 33.5 cm x 47 cm
