With tables containing an 'immense mass of reciprocal and connecting distances'. A comprehensive map for the 'British Traveller' at the beginning of the Victorian era, displaying the main railway networks, roads, and navigable canals linking the counties of England and Wales as they stood in 1838. Hand-coloured, with distance tables for each region and major towns giving miles to London, and ephemeral information including MPs returned, distance between adjoining towns, and population estimates.

A note explains 'These Tables differ from all others hitherto published, inasmuch as the distance between the principal towns in each county is not only given, but likewise the distance to the county and chief towns in the several counties immediately adjoining, so that the distance can be readily ascertained to any part of the kingdom by whatever route is desired. It will be evident, therefore, that these Tables contain an immense mass of reciprocal and connecting distances throughout the whole country'.




Large folding hand-coloured map, with distance tables for every county in England, dissected and laid on lined, framed and glazed with perspex, overall size: 152.5 cm by 111 cm by 3cm.
