City Of Bath : T. Moule

Illustrated with heraldry and a view of the Guildhall and Abbey. Maps by Thomas Moule (1784-1851) are probably, with those by Speed, the best known of all series of English county maps. Issued from 1830, 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 and papers on topography, history, genealogy, heraldry and architecture; the maps which he designed show elements of these studies. 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 good informative maps, as popular now as they were in the early years of Queen Victoria's reign. This particular plan shows a number of intended developments which never actually happened, such as Annandale Street and Frances Square near Great Pulteney Street, which were planned but never built, and is interesting for showing the canal but no hint of the railway soon to be visited upon the city. As often found, the engraving has been trimmed close and had restoration to margins but remains an attractive and fascinating plan of our favourite city.
