Samuel Simpson
A part work that appeared almost simultaneously with Thomas Read's English Traveller was a topographical work published by Robert Walker entitled Agreeable Historian or Compleat English Traveller and compiled by Samuel Simpson. Both works included maps based on Herman Moll's, the text of both was largely Thomas Cox's Magna Britannia.

Beginning in December 1743 and appearing weekly the 109 printed parts of Agreeable Historian would have been completed towards the end of 1745. The finished work is found bound in three volumes with a title page dated 1746. Forty two county maps were published in the three volumes and without any imprint; most have the arms of the county identifying them from Read's maps.
