Description

In the top left hand corner is a wonderful view of Launceston, showing the old town walls, castle, priory and prison. Eleven coats of arms are illustrated on this map, the armorial devices of the Earls and Dukes of Cornwall run along the bottom, together with the Royal coats of arms at the top of the map. Running along the right hand side of the map are drawings of "The Hurlers", an ancient stone circle, and "The Chesewring". These, together with the presence of monsters in "The British See" and ancient sites such as St Michaels Mount and Tintagel Castle, really complement this map, and make it a lovely gift for anyone with a link to Cornwall.
