A new sett of maps both of ancient and present Geography, [electronic resource] : Wherein not only the latitude and longitude of many places are corrected, according to the latest observations; but also the most remarkable differences of ancient and present geography may be quickly discern'd by a bare inspection or comparing of correspondent maps; which seems to be the most natural and easy method to lead young students (for whose use the work is principally intended) unto a competent knowledge of the geographical science. Together with a geographical treatise particularly adapted to the use and design of these maps. By Edward Wells, D.D. some time student of Christ-Church, Oxon, and late rector of Cotesbach in Leicestershire
