A map of the city of Bath, featuring vignettes of Guildhall and Abbey as well as several coat of arms From Thomas Moule's 'The English Counties Delineated: or a Topographical Description of England'. Moule first published his highly decorative series of county maps in separate issues for each county between 1830 and 1832. In 1836 these were brought together in one work, by George Virtue & Co. They continued to appear in Rev. Barclay's Dictionary into the 1840's.
Originally a writer on heraldry and general antiquities, Thomas Moule (1784 - 1851) was born in Marylebone, London. From around 1816 to 1823 he was a Bookseller with a shop in Grosvenor Square, London. He then became an inspector of letters in the General Post Office, where his responsibilities included trying to 'read' illegible hand writing.
