A New Map Of Great Britain ... Inland Navigations ... Railways
J.Wyld - London - - 56 x 71 - Original colour - "A New Map Of Great Britain; Particularly Shewing The Inland Navigation, By The Canals, And Principal Rivers, With The Railways, Finished And In Progress". The title's emphasis on the canals and rivers suggests that the mapping of the railways was not first priority on this project, at least when it was first thought of. However, the speed at which the railway network was expanding is clearly illustrated here - both actual and intended railways are shown. The map is laid on linen and folds into original boards which also contains a list of the finished railways, those in progress and those proposed. This list also bears the label of booksellers Hickman & Co. in Henley who sold the map. A little light offsetting and wear to the boards' hinge, otherwise in generally good condition.
