Biography:

John Ogilby (1600-1676)

Ogilby was one of the more coloourful and important figures associated with cartography, started life as a dancing master and finished as the King’s Cosmographer and Geographic Printer. He was the first to produce a practical road Atlas, the Britannia. The maps engraved in strip form, give details of the roads and descriptive notes of the country, with each strip having a compass rose to indicate changes in direction. He was the first to use the standard mile of 1,760 yards. The Britannia was never completed as planeed.
