Cruchley's New and Improved Map of the Environs of London 1831
A very rare and exclusive Map.
This is an Original hand coloured engraved map of London and its environs extending to Surrey, Essex and Kent. Backed into linen, edged in green silk, and folded, with green cloth slipcase. A rare glimpse into London nearly 200 years ago pre motorways and many of the buildings today
Size: 60 x 95 cm. Folded (19 x 14 cm.)
Condition: There are no tears or large imperfections to the map. It does show signs of wear that would be expected with a map nearly 200 years old. Signs of foxing and worn edges along the sides and folds. The colours are still vibrant and strong. The Cardboard sleeve has signs of wear but is in the condition to be expected of a map of this age.
