In 1720 Thomas Bowles and Emanuel Bowen published a new reduced version of John Ogilby's strip maps. Britannia Depicta came hot on the heels of the two reduced editions issued the previous year by Thomas Gardner and John Senex, but was much more innovative. Where Gardner and Senex had closely followed the strip layout and design of Ogilby, the new work further reduced the size of the volume, by including only 3 or 4 strips per page, and by printing on both sides of the page, but also added a considerable amount of additional detail by way of historical and topographical notes and heraldry. This additional information turned the work into much more than just a road book - it was virtually a guide book. This added detail was researched and provided by John Owen, who passed it to Bowen to incorporate into the layout and engraving of the pages. The work also included a set of English and Welsh county maps. Britannia Depicta became a great commercial success, and was re-issued a number of times up to 1764, with occasional amendments and additions. This example has a road map to the verso showing the road from York to Pickering via Malton..

Pages 67/68 - Tregony, Penzanze, St. Buryon, Land's End. In 1720 Thomas Bowles and Emanuel Bowen published a new reduced version of John Ogilby's strip maps. Britannia Depicta came hot on the heels of the two reduced editions issued the previous year by Thomas Gardner and John Senex, but was much more innovative. Where Gardner and Senex had closely followed the strip layout and design of Ogilby, the new work further reduced the size of the volume, by including only 3 or 4 strips per page, and by printing on both sides of the page, but also added a considerable amount of additional detail by way of historical and topographical notes and heraldry. This additional information turned the work into much more than just a road book - it was virtually a guide book. This added detail was researched and provided by John Owen, who passed it to Bowen to incorporate into the layout and engraving of the pages. The work also included a set of English and Welsh county maps. Britannia Depicta became a great commercial success, and was re-issued a number of times up to 1764, with occasional amendments and additions. This example is from the first edition of 1720. It has a road map on one side only, the verso carrying part of the description of London.

Pages 245/246 - Carmarthen, Cardigan, Lampeter, Trefilan, Aberystwyth. In 1720 Thomas Bowles and Emanuel Bowen published a new reduced version of John Ogilby's strip maps. Britannia Depicta came hot on the heels of the two reduced editions issued the previous year by Thomas Gardner and John Senex, but was much more innovative. Where Gardner and Senex had closely followed the strip layout and design of Ogilby, the new work further reduced the size of the volume, by including only 3 or 4 strips per page, and by printing on both sides of the page, but also added a considerable amount of additional detail by way of historical and topographical notes and heraldry. This additional information turned the work into much more than just a road book - it was virtually a guide book. This added detail was researched and provided by John Owen, who passed it to Bowen to incorporate into the layout and engraving of the pages. The work also included a set of English and Welsh county maps. Britannia Depicta became a great commercial success, and was re-issued a number of times up to 1764, with occasional amendments and additions.
