An attractive and detailed map of the island published by Payne and Foss in Pall Mall, London. Engraved by the prolific John Walker, the island is shown in good detail at a scale of almost one inch to the mile with physical relief indicated by hachuring, forested areas marked and the geological feature of The Undercliff clearly defined. Originally folded into a volume, old creases have been backed for conservation.
