[Yorkshire] Bowen, An Accurate Map of the County of York Divided into its Ridings and Subdivided into Wapentakes... London, 1750. 21 x 27½. Old outline color. Very Good condition. $450.00
This fascinating and detailed map depicts roads (including Roman Ways to York and Scotland), castles, parks, the light house at Flambrough Head, and the "Devil's Causeway" between Kirkby Londale and Middleham. Tables list the seats of Nobility and "some other Gentlemen," and a list of all the Dukes and Earls of York and Richmond. Topographical features include heads of rivers, sulphur wells and a 60-foot waterfall. An interesting feature is concentric circles extending in one mile intervals from York to the county's borders, allowing the user to readily calculate distances.
