In around 1665 the instrument-maker and mapseller Philip Lea (d.1700) came into possession of the Saxton plates. Lea re-engraved two plates which were missing, perhaps casualties of the Great Fire. He also reworked the original plates, enriching Saxton's maps by incorporating geographical and decorative detail, mainly from those of Speed and Ogilby, modernising and substituting English (for Latin) titles and scales. By his second edtion of 1693 all the maps contained Speed's town plans. See R.A.Skelton. County Atlases of the British Isles 1579-1703. 112, for full details.
