An attractive and usefully-sized pocket map of the county of Sussex. Dissected into six pieces and laid on linen the map folds neatly into buckram boards measuring just 9 x 11 cm - easily transported for a day out in the Sussex countryside and helpful to navigate across the Downs and beyond. The inside cover has a label listing the "Pocket County Maps" engraved by Sidney Hall and available for purchase. Here the mail roads are coloured blue, the coach roads are brown, and the county divisions (according to the Reform Bill) are coloured in red. The Hundreds and Rapes are listed in the upper right corner of the map and distances from London are also given. The initials of a previous owner, E.K.B., are inked carefully on the inside cover.
