LINCOLNS-HIRE Drawn from the best Authorities by Eman: Bowen Geographr. to His Majesty
A county map of Lincolnshire by Bowen for Hinton's Universal Magazine. The scroll modified arms of Lincoln are shown below the detailed cartouche sketching of the countryside of dense foliage and a fence. An explanatory legend resides in the bottom left hand corner. At the mouth of the Humber River shows sunk island as a discreet entity, although by this time it had begun to silt up enough to be considered as a part of the mainland. These maps published only 4 years prior to the offering of £100 by the Society of Arts for county maps.
The scale is 1 inch : 1 mile or larger as an impetus to improve the overall surveying and mapping of the country. The scale bar is in English miles, and London is used for the prime meridian. The scale and coordinates were calculated from the scale bar and graticule.
