Boston. Thomas Moule's antiquarian leanings are evident in this series of highly decorative county maps - a stylistic throwback in an age when cartographic work had become much plainer and more utilitarian. The maps were engraved by W. Smollinger, J. Bingley and J. Dower, and first appeared in Moule's English Counties Delineated, a partwork with text issued from 1830-32. They were subsequently made available as a complete work in 1837 under the same title, and were later re-issued in Barclay's Universal English Dictionary between 1842 and 1852. This latter work ran to several editions and the maps were often updated between editions to show the latest growth of the railway network. As well as county maps the set also included a small number of town plans, though all of these did not appear in every edition of the work. This plan of Boston, engraved by W. Smollinger, is from an edition of Moule's English Counties Delineated between 1837 and 1839. Modern colour.
