IOW & Hampshire Map 1794

John Cary's map of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight circa 1794 is section 15 of Cary's Map of England.


Cary is one of the most prominent English map makers with a fine eye for detail and precision. This accuracy probably stemmed from his work as an engraver, which must have given him great patience and a gentle touch which served him well when creating larger maps.
