Joel Gascoyne's Map of Cornwall, published in 1699, set new standards in county map making. He used a larger scale (nearly one inch to the mile), included hamlets and farms as well as towns, villages and roads, and for the first time showed the parish boundaries. This edition, by Professor W L D Ravenhill, is the first facsimile of this rare map (extant in only three copies), and is presented (like the original) in 13 separate sheets: one of the whole county and 12 of its parts. These are supplied in a hard case, together with a detailed introduction, and a study of the place-names by Dr O J Padel.
