ANTIQUE MAP: CHESHIRE.

[MOULE, Thomas, 1784-1851] : CHESHIRE.

[London : George Virtue, 1832 (but later)]. A fine antique map of the county originally engraved by William Schmollinger (fl.1830-1837) for the part-work “English Counties Delineated” (London : 1830-1837) prepared by the antiquary Thomas Moule. Decorated with seven coats of arms, an ornate gothic border, and vignette views of Chester Cathedral and Eaton Hall. Originally engraved in 1832, the present version, showing some development of the railway system, is dated to about 1842.
Steel line engraving on paper. Later hand colour. Engraved surface 195 x 255mm (approx. 7-3/4” x 10"). A few very faint marks, but overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map.
