ANTIQUE MAP: GLOUCESTERSHIRE.

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

[London : George Virtue, ca.1845]. A most attractive "gothick" map of the county engraved by James Bingley (1796-1869) for the part-work “English Counties Delineated” (London : 1830-1837) prepared by the antiquary Thomas Moule. Decorated with an ornamental border, strapwork title, coats of arms, inset views of Cheltenham, Gloucester and Tewkesbury, swags of fruits and flowers, etc. Originally engraved in 1830, the present (slightly revised) edition is dated to about 1845. The map is illustrated in both Tooley’s "Maps and Mapmakers" and Lister’s "How to Identify Old Maps".
Steel line engraving on paper. Later hand colour. Engraved surface 261 x 205mm (approx. 10-3/8” x 8”). Stitch-marks to left-hand blank margin, but otherwise in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map.
