SKU: dadi/shro/001

A very rare and attractive early 19th century map of Shropshire (also known as Salop) which appeared in Darton & Dix's A Complete Atlas Of The English Counties (London: William Darton & Son, c.1835). The maps from this series are noteworthy for their richness of detail, engraving quality, fine original hand colour and quaint vignette view -- in this case, of Shrewsbury. Despite their quality, the Darton & Dix maps are amongst the rarest county maps to find and are much sought after by collectors.
