Map of the Hills, Rivers, Canals and Principal - ARROWSMITH, Aaron - 1820. 
1820 - London, 1813-1820. Original colour. Four sheets, dissected and laid on linen in four sections as issued, total if joined 1820mm x 14600mm, with marbled chemise. An large and detailed map of England and Wales, with the counties delineated with fine original hand colour. Aaron Arrowsmith (1750-1823) was at the forefrond of the new, more scientific approach to mapping, reducing the ornament and concentrating on exactitude. However the quality of the colour means this is very striking map. Originally published in 1813, this example has been undated for re-issue in 1820, when Arrowsmith became 'Hydrographer to the King', when George IV became king instead of Prince Regent.
