Chalk And South Damerham : P. Crocker / J. Cary

click here to view a large version in a separate window

This detailed map shows the hundreds of Chalk and South Damerham, shown on the map in Wiltshire but now located in Hampshire. The map shows the meeting point of the counties of Wiltshire, Dorset and Hampshire at this time. This appears to be a working proof for the the printed map ultimately published in "The ... History Of South Wiltshire" by R.C.Hoare in 1833. Prepared by Philip Crocker, Frome-based surveyor and cartographer, this example is interesting for the manuscript additions to the map, most of which appear to be corrections and improvements. The manuscript hand has added an alternative title, a compass, additional names to the roads and other physical details. We can find no evidence of the map having been published with the amended title, however a number of other corrections were included on the final version. The same hand, which we presume to be Hoare's, has written on the verso "Messrs Cary, St James' Street, p. Messrs Nicholls, RCH". As such the map seems to be addressed to the renowned mapmaker/engraver Cary, whose premises were in St James' Street at this time, via Messrs. Nicholls and RCH. Marginal tears repaired and slight evidence of old folds. A fascinating example of a work in progress.
