Dame Venodotia alias Modryb Gwen – A Map of North Wales

A rare and unusual antique map of North Wales which was printed by lithography.  It was drawn on stone by the Victorian landscape artist  J.J. Dodd  R.A.  from a design prepared by Hugh Hughes. The map was published by H. Humphreys, Castle Square, Caernarvon in about 1854 with contemporary hand colouring.  North Wales is represented in the shape of an old woman carrying a sack on her back.  The key beneath the title lists the region's towns, lakes, rivers, mountains and lighthouses.
