Long title: Map of the North West Circuit of the Principality of Wales, Comprising the Counties of Anglesey, Caernarfon & Merioneth from Actual Survey, made in the Years 1830 & 1831. A very decorative map of the counties of Anglesey, Caernarfon & Merioneth, North Wales. Large vignette illustration of Bangor Cathedral to the bottom right. Table of explanation and a reference to the county wards to the left edge. Printed on Whatman Turkey Mill paper, one of the best available at the time. Steel engraving, original full hand colouring. Engraved by Josiah Neele. Archival strengthening on verso of centrefold, 17.2cms from bottom and 11.5cms from top. Both old and modern colour. Overall sheet size: Between 1817 and 1830 the Greenwoods produced large-scale county maps in an attempt to compete with the Ordnance Survey Office. Ultimately unsuccessful in this aim they nevertheless managed to produce a series of large-scale folding maps of most counties. They were unable to complete the series but later, in 1834, they published an ‘Atlas of the Counties of England’, an attractive set of hand coloured maps with vignettes of notable buildings.
