Steel engraving, 27 x 19 cm, modern hand-colour, upper part of image fractionally trimmed, blank verso. A map of Herefordshire 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.
