I have the David and Charles published reprints. In that edition, Essex is
covers by four maps 63, 64, 72 and 73. I think that these are available
from David Archer Maps < www.david-archer-maps.co.uk >.
Alan Godfrey Maps < www.alangodfreymaps.co.uk > also publish an edition of
reprints. They have a different numbering systems and Essex is covered by
fourteen maps! of which there are reprints of eight. I assume these are a
slightly later date.
I must admit that I don't use the one inch to the mile maps very often, but
they are excellent to see how close to or far apart villages are from each
other. old-maps.com is better if you need more detail, but you are
restricted in how much you can see at one time. Nothing beats a big map
sheet spread right out (except possibly two maps.)
