This is one of the most attractive maps of the Isle of Man. It was engraved by James Bingley for Thomas Moule in 1833 and this edition was published by George Virtue with his imprint. The map is decorated with extravagant gothic architectural borders, coats of arms and a vignette featuring the allegorical female representation of Mona presiding over stormy seas. The map itself provides detailed information, particularly of the roads.
On a sturdy sheet with a few faint, unobtrusive spots and a few short edge tears, none of which enter into the map.
