Bartholomew, J. (illus).
London. George Philip & Son. Ca. 1870s.
Map, printed color, dissected into 24 panels and mounted on linen, 21 1/2 x 26 1/2 folding into gilt lettered embossed cloth covered boards (6 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches) as issued. Wear to extremities of cover, front joint is cracked, owner inscription on outer panel, scattered foxing to cloth verso of map, small hole in linen backing at one fold intersection, occasional light soiling, linen is toned along folds but is still strong with no splits or fraying. Good condition. "The Publishers of the present Series of Travelling Maps confidently recommend them, as being the most accurate in detail, as well as the cheapest Maps that have hitherto been published. Great attention has been paid to the correct laying down of the Roads and Railways, and the insertion of all places of interest to the Tourist. The object aimed at in the style of Engraving is distinctness--an important feature, to which ordinary Maps can lay no claim...the plan of Coloring by means of Printing insures an accurate definition of boundary and an harmonious general effect, much superior to the old method of coloring by hand." Owner's inscription dated "7/6/76" Item #40152
