Abstract

Draft estate maps by Matthew Nelson and Thomas Langdon demonstrate the process of map-making in the early seventeenth century. The drafts result from plane table and theodolite surveys, with score marks indicating sighting or protraction lines. Further scoring transferred the drafts to parchment for engrossment, creating a clear distinction between field observations and the rich imagery of the completed map.
