Volume 2 of the cross roads in 46 plates.
There are title pages and a few pages of text; the road book size is 15x21cm and may well be labelled on the spine as 'Ogilby's Roads 1719'; the maps are reduced from Ogilby's strip maps of 1675, they are numbered bottom right and are plain on the reverse. The pagination matches the roads of John Ogilby of which this road book was intended to be a new version. There were many editions.
The plates that concern Westmorland, Cumberland etc, now Cumbria are 38, 62, 86, and 96.

Published in a third edition '... London: Printed for & sold by M. Senex, at the Globe agst St. Dunstans Church Fleetstreet.' an advertisement within includes '... by the late John Senex & continued to be sold by His Widow M. Senex, ...' 1742.
The maps are unchanged from the 1719 edition; but it is strongly suspected that plate numbering varies (I have not inspected multiple editions). In at least one edition pl.37 is the number on the route of pl.39, for example.
