The 18th century cartographer Herman Moll

Herman Moll

Herman Moll was a Dutch engraver and cartographer who came from Holland to London, England in 1670's. It is likely that he was of German origin. He was also an important engraver of the day working for many well known mapmakers such as Moses Pitt, John Adair and Greenville Collins. He later started to trade in about 1695 as a mapseller and publisher. First at Vanley's Court, Blackfriars before later moving to Devereux Court between Temple Bar and St.Clements Church in the Strand.

He produced larger number of atlases of many parts of the world but the collector of British Maps will be more interested in his county maps of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The English county maps are easily recognised for the engravings of antiquities excavated in the county including coins, statues and Roman altars. A Set of Fifty New and Correct Maps of England and Wales published with others by J. and T.Bowles in 1724. In the first year there was a reprint in which a plate number appeared within brackets in the top left hand border of each map. The following year in 1725 A Set of Thirty-six New and Correct Maps of Scotland was published by Thomas Bowles, Print and Map-Seller near the Chapter House in St.Paul's Churchyard and by John Bowles, Print and Map-seller over against Stocks Market at his shop in Mercers Hall, Cheapside.
