    Copper engraving, 19.5 x 31.3 cm, recent hand-colour; map of Hereforshire with antiquities (British coins) in the margins, blank verso. Herman Moll (c. 1654-1732) was both map engraver and publisher, one of the most prolific and significant map-makers working in England in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth-centuries. He is now known to have been of German (rather than Dutch) origin, and he came to London at some point in the 1670s, initially working with established figures such as Moses Pitt.
