In the top right hand corner is a plan of Lancaster, along with a legend detailing the streets and main buildings of the town. Along the sides of the map are lovely portraits of the prominent figures of the Houses of Lancaster and York, with two short histories of them. The coat of arms of Edmund Crouchback, Earl of Lancaster, and John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster are also shown. Amongst others, the small towns of Liverpool and Manchester, now huge cities, are marked; along with rivers such as the Mersey, forests, hills and marshes, and even a mermaid combing her hair in the Irish Sea!
