A New Mapp of Rome Shewing Its Antient And Present Scituation.  Most Humbly Inscribed to His Grace The Duke of Queensbury and Dover

Finely colored and highly detailed map of Rome.

Includes 4 vignettes showing the Coliseum, St. Peters, The Sepulcher of Caijus Cestus, and Trajan's Pillar. The keys to the map identify 155 Churches, Parishes, Monasteries, etc., 56 Palaces and Colleges and 41 Churches Titular of Cardinals. The fortified walls of the City are shown, along with bridges across the Tyber River, streets, buildings, squares and a host of other details.

John Senex (1678-1740) was one of the foremost mapmakers in England in the early eighteenth century. He was also a surveyor, globemaker, and geographer. As a young man, he was apprenticed to Robert Clavell, a bookseller. He worked with several mapmakers over the course of his career, including Jeremiah Seller and Charles Price. In 1728, Senex was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society, a rarity for mapmakers. The Fellowship reflects his career-long association as engraver to the Society and publisher of maps by Edmund Halley, among other luminaries. He is best known for his English Atlas (1714), which remained in print until the 1760s. After his death in 1740 his widow, Mary, carried on the business until 1755. Thereafter, his stock was acquired by William Herbert and Robert Sayer (maps) and James Ferguson (globes).
