Ogilby 1675

Descriptive text, 25 pages, from a road book, Itinerarium Angliae, or Book of the Roads, probably by John Ogilby, describing all the roads mapped in England and Wales, about 1670s.
Each plate has a text describing the road, a table of distances, descriptions of turning to take and not to take, etc.
It is not clear whether this Ogilby's text, or another publisher's words, it is more likely the latter.
