click here to view a large version in a separate window

Dedicated to the Postmaster General. This detailed map shows the turnpike roads, with the distances from London and between each market town. Canals and navigable rivers also appear. Southern Scotland is also depicted. Dissected and laid on canvas, with its original slipcase in rather aged condition. Map papers overall good and canvas worn at old folds but all intact. Map has Sheffield University Library sticker on - stating “bequeathed by John Stokes, M.A. M.D Of Sheffield” with their cancellation stamp superimposed. In 1794 John Cary, one of the leading British mapmakers of the period, had published a very detailed atlas of sectional map sheets, as opposed to individual counties, which could be mounted on canvas as a wallmap. This is a reduction, folding in practical form, of that map.
