A Rare Map of Kent.
The 1800 Ordnance Survey one inch Mudge map of Kent is well known
and is well illustrated on the web. This 1807 half inch to the mile

A comprehensive search of the internet has found very few references
to this map. No images were located. A detailed scan of the map is
available for viewing here for those interested in the early mapping of Kent.
This map shows Kent a few years before the 1809 revision of the one inch
Mudge map. Some areas of Surrey and Sussex not shown in the one inch map
are included here. The map is in the first issued state. It was
continually updated until at least the 1890s.

n.b. I recently noticed that the makers of this map made a serious
error. The southmost latitude values in the South West (2A) and South East (2D) corners are
given as 55°0' and 55°5'. These should be 51°0' and 50°55'.
