GREENWOOD, C&J. Engraved by WALKER, J&C.
MAP of the County of NORFOLK, From an Actual Survey made in the Years 1831 AND 1832.
Large and attractive map of Norfolk with a detailed and decorative vignette view of Norwich Cathedral lower right. 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.
