John Kirby’s Suffolk: His Maps and Roadbooks, 1735
Volume Number: 47
Edited and introduced by John Blatchly. John Kirby surveyed the county between 1732 and 1734 for the first county roadbook, The Suffolk Traveller, 1735, given to subscribers to the first map at one mile to the inch. This was the first map since Suffolciae in Seckford’s great Atlas of 1575 to do more than plagiarise the latter.
