In the top left corner, a birds eye view of Dorchester is shown,
with the names of the main streets, and the old wall of the town marked.
In the bottom left hand corner are the armorial devices of the Earls of Dorchester,
and between them and the scale of miles in the right hand corner,
ships and fanciful sea creatures have been illustrated.
The major towns of Dorchester, Wimbourne, Sherbourne and Shaftesbury, as well as
the important ports of Weymouth and Poole are faithfully marked on the map.
