Somersetshire : T. Moule

click here to view a large version in a separate window

With a vignette view of Glastonbury Cross and a numbered reference of the hundreds and liberties, this is a popular map of Somerset. Maps by Thomas Moule (1784-1851) are probably, with those by Speed, the best known of all series of English county maps. The maps combine a clarity of cartographic style with immense detail, by way of vignette views, scenes and portraits relating to the county shown, often set within a gothic architectural or floral surround, into which armorial devices and so on are worked. As the editions of the maps were published, first in "The English Counties Delineated" and later in "Barclay's English Dictionary", the development of the network of railways throughout England can be observed. Moule, like many other map-makers and map-sellers before him, was a man of many talents. As an author his output included books, papers on topography, history, genealogy, heraldry and architecture. The 57 maps and plans produced for Moule's "English Counties Delineated", originally issued as a part-work, include maps of each English county, the towns of London, Bath, Boston, Portsmouth and Plymouth, and the Isles of Wight, Man and Thanet. Frequently entitled "the last series of decorative county maps" they are informative maps, as popular now as they were in the early years of Queen Victoria's reign. With protective added margins, this is an attractive example.
