Herman Moll was a Dutchman who settled in England by 1678. His contributions to the cartographic world over the ensuing decades were considerable. This map is from the ‘A New Description of England and Wales’, an English County Atlas first published in 1724. That same year the maps also appeared as ‘A Set of Fifty New and Correct Maps of England and Wales’. The maps most distinguishing features are the decorative antiquities which surround the map. This is an example of the second state of the map. Hodson 173; Quixley 24.
