GREENWOOD, C&J. Engraved by WALKER, J&C.
Map of the County of HEREFORD, FROM AN Actual Survey MADE IN THE YEAR 1831.
Large and attractive map of Herefordshire with a detailed and decorative vignette view of Hereford Cathedral lower left. During the eighteenth century each county map was a separate project sponsored by the local gentry. By 1800 nearly all English counties had been surveyed. In the early nineteenth century two enterprises attempted to survey all the English counties: the brothers Christopher and John Greenwood, and Andrew Bryant. This map comes from the Greenwoods atlas, which was published in parts, but was never completed.
