Based on Collins but with additional detail e.g. fenced mound for'Tinwald Court'
Herman Moll (c1654-1732) was a German emigre[Tyac73] (though most refs say Dutch) who came to London about in or before 1678 and worked as an engraver, he engraved several of Collin's charts including that of the IoM. He later set up his own firm and became, around 1700, the foremost map publisher in London. He often complained that other publishers copied his work.

These maps are rather scrappy though he obviously sought out additional material.
