Map of the UK bound into the first of 5 volumes of manuscript in Dr Williams's Library. The volumes are illustrated throughout with maps by Herman Moll for the country as a whole and for individual counties, most being annotated to show the presence of dissenting congregations. The opening page describes the volumes as 'A Collection of Papers containing an account of the original formation of some hundred protestant dissenting congregations; the succession of their pastors, and remarkable Providences and Transactions, which have happened among them to the present time. Taken from their Church books, the testimony and report of old people, private papers and other authentic records. Begun to be collected in the year 1772 with a view to assist anyone who may be disposed to pursue the enquiry and draw up a more accurate account.' (Dr Williams's Library MS 38.10)
