An interesting 19th century fox hunting map of Devon which was produced by J. & C. Walker and published in Hobson’s* Fox Hunting Atlas; Containing Separate Maps Of Every County in England **(London: J. & C. Walker, 1850).

**The maps from this series, which are lithographic transfers, were taken from the original steel plates engraved by J. & C. Walker for their ‘British Atlas’ (first published in 1837) Additional information was then added so as to highlight the ‘places of the meeting of foxhounds’ and to display the county’s various hunts — in the case of Devon, this includes the North Devon, the Mr. Furse, the Eggesford, the Tiverton, the Mr. Marshall, the Mr Morgan, the Devon, the Mr. Trelawny, the Mr Roe and the Sir H. Seale. The map also lists the county’s population, the place of election and polling places, the number of M.P.s returned and displays the extensive railway network that existed in the mid 19th century.
