Steel engraving, 19.5 x 26 cm, modern hand-colour, short tear closed without loss, blank verso. A map of Cumberland by Moule, a bookseller, writer on heraldry and publisher who commissioned what is generally considered to be the last really decorative series of English county maps. They were first issued in monthly parts with a simple single-colour wash between 1830-37, but were issued black and white thereafter, mostly being used to illustrate editions of English Counties Delineated and Barclay’s Dictionary.
