Chapman’s Map of Nottinghamshire 1774

9 Dec

Welcome to my Blog.

I assume you are interested in Nottinghamshire, or John Chapman or maps, or any combination of the above. The starting point for this Blog is a dissertation I wrote for the University of Nottingham which tells the story of Chapman’s map of Nottinghamshire which he published in 1776. Having resolved copyright issues on the images in the dissertation it is now available on-line, just click on the link in the Menu bar.

Enjoy.

  1. Very nice blog! Is there any information anywhere about the technical aspects of surveying in the 1700s?
