MONMOUTH SHIRE Drawn from the best Authorities by Eman. Bowen Geogr. to His Majesty
A map of Monmouthshire by Bowen for Hinton's Universal Magazine. The arms of Monmouth are shown at the top right, while a highly detailed cartouche frame the work's title. Greater use of hachuring is used compared to other maps in the series due to the county's greater variation in topography. Circular fenced in areas are shown without explanation possibly military in nature; a legend in a subsequent map shows it to delineate parkland. Reference to the symbols within the accompanying text. "Engrav'd for Universal magazine" at top of map.
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.
