A charming miniature map showing a proposed canal between the Severn and the Trent, near Wolverhampton. With a delicately engraved title cartouche and vignette of a boat on a river. Printed in "The London Magazine Or, Gentleman's Monthly Intelligence". The mark of the vendor appears in the lower margin. Thomas Kitchin (1718-1784) was one of the best and most prolific engravers of the eighteenth century providing maps of all areas of the world and of individual English counties and towns, many appearing in travel books, atlases and, here, popular periodicals. His canal maps provide a vivid record of the country's developing industrial infrastructure. Left margin trimmed close with protective edging added.
