[Allegorical map of Kent.]
[London: 1612.]
Engraving  with later colour. 
A novelty map, engraved by William Hole for Michael Drayton's 'Poly-Olbion', a lengthy poem celebrating the pastural beauties of England. Towns, rivers, hills and islands are marked with female allegorical figures; administrative borders are ignored.
250 x 330mm.
Bowen: KentEmanuel Bowen.
An Accurate Map of the County of Kent.
[London: John Tinney, 1753.]
Engraving  with original outline colour.  A fine impression with wide margins. Some minor stains in the margins, and a small area of woodworm holes, otherwise fine.
A separately-issued example of this large map of Kent, published only two years after the first edition. The cartouche is especially illustrative of the county, showing hop growing, ship building, naval paraphernalia, and fishing.
This map was usually published in the 'Large English Atlas', the best county atlas of the 18th century, with maps by Emanuel Bowen, Thomas Bowen and one, Middlesex, by R.W. Seale. Beginning in 1749 the original plan was to publish one map each month until the series was completed, but this proved to be too ambitious and the 45 maps were not completed until 1760. It is interesting that there were no geographical changes to the maps during their long publication period; the only changes were to the publisher's imprints beneath the bottom border. Usually the title cartouches illustrate the produce and industry of the county. Each is packed with notes of local interest.

Moule KentThomas Moule
London, 1848
Steel plate engraving with later colour. 
Vignettes of Greenwich Hospital, Rochester and Dover.
Thomas Moule had many interests which are reflected in the illustrations on these, which are the last series of decorative county maps. Although not large they are clearly engraved with much detail showing coats of arms and vignettes of scenes within each county. They were first published in the 1830s but were later updated to show the railways, as this example.

Tinted lithograph    Minor imperfections.
A lovely subject, looking eastwards towards the cliffs, with the castle on top. The harbour seems to be not more than a couple of small jetties, just large enough to cope with the little paddle steamer that is just leaving. The frontage of the magnificent crescent is on the left. The promenade, lit by gaslights, attracts several families, children play on the beach, and there are bathing machines that appear to be covered with canvas with extensions to allow the user into the water in complete secrecy.
