Steel engraving by James Bingley ; later hand colouring. Overall size in off-white, hinged fully conservation grade mount and back with decorative v groove: 34.2cms x 41.5cms. Engraved area 192mm x 255mm. Inset view of Empingham; highly decorative border with shields, columns and two vignettes at top of Burley house and Normanton Park. This map is pre dates the railway from Leicester to Peterborough. Thomas Moule (1784-1851) was a scholar and writer on heraldry and antiquities who worked in London as a bookseller and later on worked in the Lord Chamberlain's department. The county maps for which he is best known were first published in the 1830's during the reign of William IV and re-issued in 1841, during the reign of Victoria. The original steel plates were used for all issues, but they were amended in the later edition to show the railways. These maps are very attractive and clearly printed. They were the last series of highly decorated maps to be published and they are very collectable both for their intricate design and for the very fine quality of the engraved detail.
