NORTHUMBERLAND, Drawn from and Actual Survey by Eman: Bowen Geog'r to His Majesty
A map of Northumberland by Bowen for Hinton's Universal Magazine. The arms of Newcastle are shown to the right of the map detailing three battlements in the style of crenellation. The cartouche framing the Arms is a scoll and foliage motif. An elaborate scroll and floral cartouche frames the work's title. Some features are not included in the legend such as Hadrian's Wall (Picts Wall), Devil's Causeway (Roman road), and the Wheel Causeway/Maiden Way (thought to be Roman roads at the time) but are given special annotation; however the identity of the large linear feature intersecting Hadrian's Wall is currently unknown.
The scale is British Miles and scale indicated at edge of map at in 10" increments.
