London, Published for the Proprietors by J. & C. Walker, 1838
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.
