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.
