An Accurate Map of the County of Lancashire Divided into its Hundreds, by Emanuel Bowen. Map size, 20 by 26 inches. Later outline colour. Framed in a Hogarth moulding. First edition, 1752. (Whitaker, 208.) This is a later edition (1767-87) which is apparently unrecorded! The imprint is not found in Whitaker.



The cartouche from this famous map.....



.....and the dedication.



A closer look at south west Lancashire.....




.....and at one of the historical descriptions. This is a comment of the city of Lancaster.



Whitaker writes, “A famous map, the largest of the county to date and incorporating many new details but also introducing some curious errors. The 3rd degree of longitude (West of London) was placed to pass about 1 mile west of Lancaster, whereas it should have been about 1 mile east of Ulverston, and the main body of the county is too wide from east to west, particularly in the Lonsdale hundred. There errors were widely copied in other works, until Yates introduced his map in 1787.

It shows borough (indicated by asterisks) and market towns with their market days, villages (with indication to show whether rectory or vicarage), religious houses, charity schools, castles, hundreds, hills, parks, woods, sands, meres, mosses, post roads with measured distances between the market towns, a number of other roads now shown for the first time and including those across the sands from Lancaster to Ulverston, rivers and brooks. Numerous descriptive notes are scattered around the map.

Top right, the title on a mural slab with indications of the industry of the county (a figure weighing coal, a bale of cotton, rolls of cloth, etc.) around; the dedication in an ornamental cartouche, a circular compass indicator, and the scale…..degrees and minutes of latitude and longitude. The map is divided into rectangular divisions, to indicate 5 minutes of a degree of latitude and longitude….”

Whitaker indicates at least a dozen editions of this map. The imprint here is as follows: “printed for Carrington-Blowles in St.Paul’s Church Yard      & Robt. Sayer in Fleet Street.” This combination is not recorded, but is probably dates from the 1770s.

A closer view of the map.....



.....and the cartouche.


Whitaker writes, "As claimed in the.....title, it shows hundreds (indicated by letters), 'burough' (indicated by asterisks) and market towns, lakes, mosses, meres, rivers, roads and distances. It also shows post stages and depicts a number of hills. Top right, the title in an ornamental cartouche with the 'Explanation' below. Left centre, a list of the hundreds with a circular compass indicator below. Bottom right, the scale. The border [is] marked off into degrees and minutes of latitude and longitude. This latter repeats Bowen's errors of 1750, viz:- it shows 2 degrees West to lie entirely beyond the Yorkshire boundary and 3 degrees West to pass practically through Lancaster. Below the border is 'Engrav'd  for the General Magazine of Arts & Sciences; for W. Owen at Temple Bar 1761.'

A series of townships (?) have been carefully coloured - perhaps along the route of a railway.
