The rare Index to Fryer’s 1820 map of Northumberland with towns and villages, the parish and ward in which they are situated and references to the square in which they may be found on the map. Also included is a list of markets and fairs with dates, church livings and their patrons, and a list of subscribers, headed naturally by the Duke of Northumberland. Whitaker describes Fryer’s Map of 1820 as ‘an exceedingly fine map’ which was drawn to a scale of approximately one mile to one inch, it was the first map to show the county in its correct position of latitude and longitude.
