Steel plate engraving after the Georgian/Victorian map-maker Thomas Moule (1784-1851). Moule published some of the best known English county maps. This image was first published in The English Counties Delineated in 1837. This second edition is from Barclay’s English Dictionary and it shows the development of the railway network, with the London to Brighton line clearly depicted (which, of course, was not in the first edition).
