A very attractive example of one of the first states of first Ordnance Survey map of island and adjacent coastline from Highcliff to Fareham and Havant. A fine and detailed at the large scale of one inch to the mile. The Ordnance Survey remains the nation's official mapmaking agency and has, over two hundred years, produced fine large-scale maps of all areas and set the standard for many other national mapmaking bodies. Sectional maps, as opposed to county maps, covered the whole country but for certain areas, in the Survey's early days maps were created to cover specific areas - this being devoted to the island and used, for the first time in print, the title of the agency "Ordnance Survey ...". Early issue Ordnance Survey maps are not easy to date except for their update detail where comparison of a number of sheets provides a sequence. This example is of an intermediate state, having the addition of its sheet number "X" at top right but lacking a note regarding the Hampshire coastline seen on the subsequent recorded issue consequently this is an intermediate state of 2/3 as recorded by Hellyer and Oliver. In unusually fine condition this map has been dissected and mounted onto folding cloth and is in lovely original handcolour. Ref The First Ordnance Survey Map, Hellyer and Oliver, p139. map Sheet 10. State - 2/3.
