Essex, Reuben Ramble 1845
Essex Text, Reuben Ramble 1844
ESSEX. An uncommon lithograph miniature map of the county surrounded by a wide border of vignette views of local scenes including Farming and Fishing. The maps first appeared in Miller’s New Miniature Atlas published in 1810. The decorative views were added and the maps republished by Darton & Clark in “Reuben Ramble’s Travels Through the Counties of England” in 1844. 7 1/4 x 5 3/4 inches. This is the size of overall area and not the contained map. Original hand colouring. With this map is the original double sided page of text describing the county.
Reuben Ramble was a pseudonym of the Reverend Samuel Clark (1810 - 1875). The Rector of Eaton-Bishop in Herefordshire and later a curate in Northamptonshire. He wrote geography books for children being in partnership with the publisher William Darton from c.1836 to 1843. Many copies of Reuben Ramble's Travels will no doubt have been lost over the years through mistreatment by children. I have seen specimens with drawings, scribbles and doodles during the time I have been dealing in maps. A whimsical addition for your map collection.

For over thirty years renowned artists Philip and Glyn Martin have been touring Great Britain capturing, in finely detailed watercolour paintings, the couontry's much loved towns, villages and favourite places It has taken these talented brothers thousands of miles around Britain. They have painted scenes in rural villages, industrial towns and cathedral cities, tiny fishing villages and great city ports, humble cottages and stately homes. 'Portraits of Britain' have rapidly become collectors items especially as only 850 prints are taken from each original.
Each print is one of a strictly limited edition, individually numbered out of 850 and signed. The original watercolours are used only for one edition and no other reproduction is made. The high quality of printing and the material used sets these prints apart. They are difficult to distinguish from the originals as they retain so much of the feel and delicacy of watercolour. This paper is produced especially for them by an English mill. It is made from 100% cotton and is completely acid free.
