A rare and amusing 19th Century map of Huntingdonshire which appeared in Reuben Ramble’s Travels through the Counties of England (London: Darton & Clark, 1845-1850). The original page of text which accompanied this map is included with the purchase.
‘Reuben Ramble’ was the pseudonym of the Reverend Samuel Clark who produced this work to help educate children in national and local geography. Each county is represented by a small but detailed map surrounded with various topographical images — in the case of Huntingdonshire, this includes agricultural and pastoral scenes with views of St. Ives and Godmanchester. As the children had a tendency to maltreat their books, the maps from this series are comparatively rare to find.
