Large and attractive map of Northumberland with a detailed and decorative vignette view of Alnwick Castle upper 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.

Steel engraving. Original colour with later additions. Good condition; stain to upper right; vertical crease to bottom left. Size: 63 x 61 cm. (25 x 24 inches)
