Moule, Thomas

Shop our stock of Thomas Moule's decorative maps of the historic counties of England. Thomas MOULE (1774-1851). Originally a writer on Heraldry and general antiquities, Moule was born in Marylebone, London. From around 1816 to 1823 he was a bookseller, with a shop in Duke Street, Grosvenor Square, later becoming an inspector of illegibly adddressed letters at the General Post Office. Moule's highly decorative series of English county maps were first published in separate issues for each county between 1830 and 1832. In 1836 these were brought together in one work, "The English Counties Delineated", by George Virtue & Co. They also appeared in other publications including Rev. Barclay's "Complete and Universal English Dictionary" until around 1850. The maps have later hand colour.
