Hall 1833 folding map

Essex

Chapman and Sydney Hall had published A Topographical Dictionary of Great Britain and Ireland and A New British Atlas in 1833, with the latter reissued in 1834 and 36, and then re-published as A Travelling County Atlas in 1842 and many times up to 1885 (or later) - all using the same underlying map.

Displayed scale of 10 miles = 37mm, or 6.9 miles/inch; actual scale = 6.7 miles/inch, or 1:420,000.

This individual county map is dissected on cloth and folded between boards, and uses an 1833 map - there are no railways, but the main Turnpikes are highlighted.
