Description:
Copper-engraved map of Staffordshire with a decorative title cartouche. A town's importance is measured by the size of its symbol on the map. Lichfield's iconic three-spired cathedral is shown as part of that city's symbol. In Morden's time, Lichfield was one of the great cultural and religious centres in Britain which is why it is marked with such prominence. Coloured. [STAFFS271]
