Curious circular county map rated no 1 (Rare) by John Booth in his books Antique Maps of Wales, 'maps from this atlas ..(although) comparatively recent (in) origin are extremely scarce and will prove very difficult to find'.. Beneath the map is text giving details of the county, its size, number of towns and parishes, the number of houses , population and climate. John Luffman (fl. circa 1776-1820) was an accomplished engraver, mapmaker and publisher, working in London. He started his career as an engraver, with his earliest work being for two road books, Mostyn John Armstrong's An Actual Survey Of The Great Post-Roads Between London And Edinburgh and Taylor And Skinner's Survey And Maps Of The Roads Of North Britain, Or Scotland., both published in 1776. However, in the early years of the nineteenth century, he seems to have established himself as a publisher, issuing A New Pocket Atlas And Geography Of England And Wales in 1803.
