Map, hand coloured engraving, A New Map of the Counties of Cumberland and Westmoreland Divided into their Respective Wards, scale about 4 miles to 1 inch, by Emanuel Bowen and Thomas Kitchin et al, published by T Bowles, Robert Sayer, and John Bowles, London, 1760.
The imprint at the bottom has names deleted, perhaps John Tinney and 'and Son' from John Bowles. The map was first published in the Large English Atlas, 1760, whose origins go back to 1749. This version of the map probably comes from the 1785 edition.
The map has a dedication to Sir James Lowther.
