Moule was 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’.
