Cumberland : T. Moule

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive map of Cumberland surrounded by vignette views of Carlisle. Thomas Moule (1784-1851), like many other map-makers and map-sellers before him, was a man of many talents. As an author his output included books and papers on topography, history, genealogy, heraldry and architecture. His county maps show elements of all his studies and interests. Maps by Moule are some of the best known English county maps. Issued from 1830 onwards the maps combine a clear cartographic style with immense detail - vignette views, scenes and portraits relating to the county are often included on the map, frequently set within gothic architectural or floral surround into which armorial devices and so on are worked. As editions of the maps continued to be published, first in "The English Counties Delineated", from which this particular example comes, and later in "Barclay's English Dictionary", the development of the network or railways throughout England could be observed. The maps were also used in a volume entitled "The History Of England From The Invasion Of Julius Caeser..." by Hume, Smollet and Farr, from which this particular example comes. Frequently entitled "the last series of decorative county maps", Moule's maps are good, informative maps, as popular now as they were in the early years of Queen Victoria's reign.
