'CHESHIRE' by Reuben Ramble c.1845
SKU: ramb/ches/002

A rare, attractive and unusual 19th Century map of Cheshire which appeared in Reuben Ramble's Travels through the Counties of England (London: Darton & Clark, 1845-1850).

'Reuben Ramble' was the pseudonym of the Reverend Samuel Clark who produced the work to help educate children in national and local geography. In the work, each county is represented by a small but detailed map surrounded with various topographical images -- in the case of Cheshire, this includes cheese making, salt working and a view of Chester Cathedral. As the children had a tendency to maltreat their books, the maps from this series are comparatively rare to find.
