A decorative and rare 19th century map of Lincolnshire which was published in G. B. Depping’s L’Angleterre. Ou Description Historique et Topographique Du Royaume Royaume Uni De La Grande-Bretagne (Paris: 1824-1835). Drawn by Aristade Perrot and engraved by Adrien Migneret, the maps from this series are distinct for their symbolic surrounds relating to the county’s commercial activities, cultural heritage and history. In the case of Lincolnshire, reference is made to the Bishopric in the form of a Bishop’s crook and, interestingly, one of the western towers of the Cathedral with its spire still showing even though this had been taken down in 1807; elsewhere, reference is made to its agricultural produce and to Sir Isaac Newton, a famous Lincolnshire son.
