Map Of The County Of Cornwall : C. & J. Greenwood

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A detailed map of Cornwall with a fine vignette view of St. Michael's Mount, a "rocky island crowned by medieval church and castle, home to a living community " as the National Trust partial owner, explains. By 1066, St Michael's Mount had come into the possession of the monks of its sister isle, Mont St Michel in Normandy and a church was built. Christopher and John Greenwood were one of the last private firms to undertake the large-scale mapping of England and Wales, producing many fine multi-sheet county maps from their own survey work as well as these attractive atlas maps. The atlas maps are most frequently found in attractive, full-wash colour across the body of the map, and are distinguished by their precise detail, finely scrolled lettering and vignette views of notable buildings within each county. Published in Christopher and John Greenwood's Atlas Of The Counties Of England, from Actual Surveys made from the Years 1817 to 1833, this particular example comes from the edition issued without a centre fold.
