A very decorative map of the roads of Wales. A. E. Taylor's series first appeared in 1932 as promotional posters for Pratt's Motor Oil Company and were re-issued after their takeover by Esso at slightly reduced scale in 1936 in "Pictorial Britain and Ireland ..." This map is covered with vignettes and short quotations from historical figures, illustrating and describing major towns and landmarks along the roads.
