Printing Details

This is an attractive hand-coloured map of the county of Westmoreland dating from circa 1785. The sheet measures 23 × 18.5cm, with the sheet edges folded neatly around a piece of card ready for framing (the fold almost follows the plate mark).

The map is hand-coloured with pink for the county border, and the with Windermere (Winander Meer) and Ullswater (Ulles Lake) in blue, and forests in green. The map is embellished with the Arms of Appleby and a cartouche and small landscape title, and was created by Thomas Kitchin. It appeared in Boswell's Historical Descriptions of New and Elegant Picturesque Views of the Antiquities of England and Wales.

One other point of interest is the key which shows King Arthur' Round Table (marked with an 'a') which can be found just south of Penrith at the top of the map.
