SUSSEX MOULE

Code: M2786

Cartographer: Moule

Date: 1845c London

Size: 22*26 cms

A highly decorative map of Sussex with views of Brighton, Chichester cathedral & Arundel castle.

The Moule county maps were unusual for the period in that they were highly decorative. The scientific rationality of the late 18th & early 19th century had seen a move away from the flamboyance of earlier map making; emphasising instead a greater desire for accuracy and detail. Thomas Moule, like many of his contemporaries however, was drawn to a more simplistic, pre-industrial age. This was clearly reflected in his maps with their neo-Gothic borders, heraldic shields and views of ancient building; ironically, the Moule maps issued later in the 1840s were amongst the first to show the newly constructed railways.

Excellent hand colour.

Very good condition.
