Title: Greenough’s Map of Westmoreland
Creator: George Bellas Greenough (1778-1855) after William Smith (1769-1839)
Description: Geological colouring, probably by George Bellas Greenough, on base map ‘A New Map of Westmorland divided into wards’, published by John Cary, 1811. Sectioned and on cloth.
The map has extensive manuscript notes by Greenough in which he states that the colouring “…has been corrected after Smith’s published in 1824 but is now too confused and ?indistinct to be of any use – the strata has been laid in correctly in my geol. map of England and revised by [Adam] Sedgwick.”
The map was part of the collection of George Bellas Greenough, given to the Society in 1856.
Format: Hand colouring on engraved base map.
