  • "The first actual measurement of the roads of England, in statue miles, was made by John Ogilby, cosmographer to Charles II, and was published by him in 1675, under the title of 'Britannia', with copious descriptions, and 100 copper-plates of the roads, in a large folio volume: the instrument used by him was called a wheel-dimensurator, and answers entirely to the perambulator now in use." -- Penny Cyclop√¶dia of The Society for the Diffusion of Knowledge.
