Which Farringdon?[edit]

Does anyone known which Farringdon this page should be linling to from Plate #79? MRSCTalk 23:32, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Fixed it, the maps are strip maps leading from one place to the other. Following a straight line from Oxford to Bristol via Malmesbury on Google Earth you see a Faringdon on the line which is what I have changed the page to. There are numerous spelling mistakes in the Atlas or which I have a copy, I could try and scan the page sometime if you are interested and feel the article could do with another example.

    • I fixed a couple of redlinks on 19 October by correcting what I assumed were transcription/typing errors. Perhaps I should have left the incorrect spelling and used the pipe trick? CarolGray 08:47, 10 November 2006 (UTC)


What about Ogilby's America? I have read it was in its day the most complete atlas of North and South America.
