England's Gazetteer; or, an accurate description of all the cities, towns, and villages of the kingdom, was a large road atlas printed in the mid 18th century. The Gazetteer was written by Stephen Whatley (1712-1741) and was published in three separate editions, all which offered maps of the roads of England and Wales. Editions 1 and 2 included a dictionary of the cities, corporations, market-towns, and the most noted villages. Edition 3 went further, including, an alphabetical register of the less noted villages, with their distance, or bearing, from the next market-town or well-known place. In London, it was published by J. and P. Knapton, D. Browne, A. Millar, J. Whiston and B. White.[1]
