Isle of Wight. Although often ascribed to John Rocque, this map, by an unknown cartographer and engraver, first appeared in The English Traveller, a partwork published by Thomas Read between 1743 and 1745. The plates were later acquired by John Rocque, who re-issued the maps as The Small British Atlas in 1753. In 1769 around two thirds of the maps made a final appearance in England Displayed, a topographical work by P. Russell and O. Price. This example of the Isle of Wight map is probably from this latter work, based on the faint traces of an erased plate number outside the top right border.
