MAP of the COUNTY of WORCESTER, from an Actual Survey made in the Years 1820 & 1821
Atlas of the Counties of England from Actual Surveys Made from the Years 1817-1832. Greenwood and Co., London., 1834.. Steel engraving. Original colour with later additions. Good condition; a 5 inch tear across upper right margin, slightly affecting the image. Size: 73.5 x 63 cm. (29 x 25 inches) Large and attractive map of Worcestershire with a detailed and decorative vignette view of Worcester 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.
