Description

A plan of Hereford is illustrated in the top right corner, together with a legend, showing the streets, churches and other important places in this old city. Beneath that is a beautiful drawing and history of a battle that took place on the borders of this shire in 1461. The detail gone into on this map is very interesting, with places like "The World's End" and "Marcley Hill, which was removed in Anno 1575" shown. The Malvern and "Hatterell" hills are also faithfully portrayed. The armorial devices of the Earls of Hereford are depicted along with two cartographers,and these just add the finishing touch to this fine piece of artwork.
