Shropshire : G.Cole / J.Roper

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A detailed nineteenth-century map of Shropshire that was published in the atlas, "The British Atlas; Comprising A Complete Set Of County Maps, Of England And Wales; And Plans Of Cities And Principal Towns" in 1810. The map was drawn by G.Cole and engraved by John Roper for publication in "The Beauties Of England And Wales", that was published in parts, from c.1804. Such was the success of the publication that the maps were re-used in otherpublications, as here. The maps show accurate geographical detail, including the turnpike, mail coach and principal roads, sites of Roman and other historical remains, as well as the seats of the nobility and the gentry, and market towns with their distances from London. The maps also show the division of the counties into hundreds or wapontakes. They are representative of the functional nineteenth-century approach to cartography, yet are not unattractive.
