ANTIQUE MAP: HEREFORD SHIRE.

MORDEN, Robert, fl.1668-1703 [& MOLL, Herman, fl.1678-1732] : HEREFORD SHIRE.

[London : for Caesar Ward & Richard Chandler, 1739]. An attractive and unusual antique map of the county. Although probably produced by Robert Morden in the early 1690s, this series of maps was not published until 1701. Soon after Morden’s death in 1703 they were overhauled, revised and given a distinctively different look by the German-born engraver Herman Moll (fl.1678-1732). In this revised form they remained in print for many years, although only Morden’s name ever appears on the maps themselves. The present edition is dated to 1739.
Copper line engraving on paper. Later hand colour. Engraved surface 171 x 223mm (approx. 6-3/4” x 8-3/4”). One very faint mark, but in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map.

ANTIQUE MAP: HERE FORD SHIRE.

[MOULE, Thomas, 1784-1851] : HERE FORD SHIRE.

London : G. Virtue, 1830. A fine antique map of the county, decorated with coats of arms, an ornate draped border, and vignette views of Goodrich Castle, Garnstone House, and Hereford Cathedral. Engraved in 1830 by James Bingley (1796-1869) for Moule’s part-work series “The English Counties Delineated” (1830-1837) – and here in earliest state, dated 1830 in the plate and before the later insertion of additional material.
Steel line engraving on paper. Original hand colour. Engraved surface 265 x 185mm (approx. 10-1/2” x 7-1/4”). Cropped tight at head (as usual); a few tiny specks and spots, but overall in very good and clean state. Rare in this early state and with original colour. A guaranteed genuine antique map.
