This is an old map of the county of Kent in 1724, put together by expert cartographer and engraver Herman Moll, perhaps the finest and most important mapmaker of the 18th century.

The original description for his collection of county maps was rather interesting, so I'll include it here:
"A set of fifty new and correct maps of the counties of England and Wales, &c. with the great roads and principal cross-roads, &c. Shewing the computed miles from town to town. : a work long wanted, and very useful for all gentlemen that travel to any part of England. All, except two, composed and done by Herman Moll, geographer... And, to render this work more acceptable to the curious, the margins of each map are adorned with great variety of very remarkable antiquities."

This map looks great at all sizes, starting at 12x18 inches (30x45cm) to 24x36 inches (60x90cm) and beyond. I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 50 inches wide (125cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.

Many of the towns, villages and cities in Kent are already visible in this map.

London is in the top left of the map, back when Kent extended all the way into the city. Now of course these parts of Kent are the London boroughs of Greenwich, Lewisham, Bromley, and Bexley.

Moll's county maps are adorned with interesting views and curios - in this case, a detailed engraving of Dover Castle in the bottom right, some Roman Antiquities apparently found at Reculver, and a lovely sketch of the Greenwich Observatory.

The map also includes roads, the distances between some towns, mines, cemeteries and other landmarks.

Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your hometown!

This would make a wonderful gift for someone from Kent or who has Kent in their heart.

You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear perspex in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.

All of my maps are well packaged and sent in a rugged tube if unframed, or surrounded by foam if framed.

I try to send out all maps within 1 or 2 days of receiving your order, though some products (like face masks or mugs) can take longer to make.

If you select the free worldwide shipping option, you can usually expect to receive your map around 10 days after you order. It may be faster or slower, depending on the impact of coronavirus in your country.

If you select Express Delivery at checkout your order will be sent by courier (Fedex, DHL, UPS, Parcelforce) and will usually arrive in 2-3 days.

Customers in the US, Australia and Canada: Your map will be sent from a printer or framer in your country, which means you'll get your map sooner, you won't pay import duties, and we'll put less CO2 into the atmosphere. I have worked with some great printers and framers around the world for years - so don't worry, your map will still look amazing!

My maps are extremely high quality reproductions of original maps.

I source original, extremely rare maps from libraries, auction houses and private collections around the world, restore them at my London workshop, and then use specialist giclée inks and printers to create beautiful maps that look even better than the original.

My maps are printed on thick matte (not glossy) paper that feels high quality. In technical terms the paper weight/thickness is 10mil/190gsm. It's perfect for framing.

Please contact me if you're looking for a print on canvas or cotton rag.
