An early map of the county of Herefordshire engraved by William Hole and based upon the famous survey by Christopher Saxton. It is fully engraved to illustrate all the salient features of the county including market towns, forests, parks, hills and bridges. Decorated with strapwork title cartouche, compass rose incorporated in the scale cartouche and fine coat of arms.
Nice impression and lovely old color. There are a couple tiny tears in the blank margins.
