RUTLAND SHIRE Drawn from the best Authorities. By Eman: Bowen Geog'r to His Majesty
A map of Rutlandshire (present day Rutland), the smallest of England's historic counties, for Hinton's Universal Magazine. In comparison to some of the other maps in the series, settlements are represented by vignettes or generalized city plans. The coat of arms of Okeham is located in the bottom left corner depicting a turned-down horseshoe. The map title and responsibility are presented as a monument, and surrounded by thematically agrarian features for an idealized view of the landlocked county.
Only minutes are given for longitude, but accurately describes the graticule as west from London as it does lie between -1° and 0°.
