The map is dedicated to John Pugh.

HALL, Selina, fl.1831-1853 : WORCESTER SHIRE.
London : Chapman & Hall, 1833. A charming map of the county originally issued with the John Gorton part-work "A Topographical Dictionary of Great Britain and Ireland". The maps in this series are generally credited to Sidney Hall (1788?-1831), but maps towards the end of the series were in fact prepared and engraved by his widow and successor, Selina Hall – who silently continued the business for upwards of twenty years under the quasi-pseudonymous style of "S. Hall" – the maps continuing to be credited to her late husband.

MORDEN, Robert, fl.1668-1703 : WORCESTER SHIRE.
[London] : sold by Abel Swale, Awnsham & Iohn Churchil, . A handsome antique map by the London mapmaker Robert Morden. When they were first published in 1695, Morden’s county maps were advertised as being “much the fairest and most correct of any that have yet appear’d”. The help of “knowing gentlemen” in each county had been sought “to supply the defects, rectifie the positions, and correct false spellings”. Originally produced for the 1695 edition of “Camden’s Britannia”. Further corrections were made for this second edition of 1722.
