Chalk And South Damerham : J.B.Nicholls / R.C.Hoare

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. The printed map was published in "The ... History Of South Wiltshire" by R.C.Hoare in 1833. However, 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. The same hand has written on the verso "Messrs Cary, St James' Street, p. Messrs Nicholls, RCH". As such the map seems to be addressed to the mapmaker Cary, whose premises were in St James' Street at this time, via Messrs. Nicholls and RCH. Whether the corrections were made by an enthusiastic amateur attempting to update the mapmakers in London with the correct information or whether John Cary was preparing another edition of the map and had sought more accurate information, we are unsure. Marginal tears repaired and slight evidence of old folds. A curious and unusual map.
