(Railroad Map): London and Birmingham Railway

by Stephenson, Robert (engineer)

Condition: Very Good

London: C. F. Cheffins, 9 Southampton Buildings, 1838. Map with folds as issued, overall very good condition with original hand color, a few fold separations (no image loss) with a couple of partial repairs verso (clear, archival paper tape, so verso text completely legible). Two sheets folded into the stiff, green paper boards (title on boards "Map of the London & Birmingham Railway, and the Adjacent Country 1837). Although the boards tate 1837, the map itself clearly stipulates a publication date of Jan. 1, 1838, and is stated to be "The Company's Official Map..." The boards measure 6 x 3.75 inches, and are a bit scuffed and wrinkled, with the pasted label missing a piece from the right lower corner, but with the printing generally intact. The map is in two sheets, on stiff paper, with the title sheet runs from London westward to "Pt. of Oxon," and the second sheet runs from Towcester west past Birmingham. The image on both sheets measures approximately 11 x 27 inches. This is quite an uncommon period map of this railroad. Verso text includes fares and distance tables.. First Edition Thus. Very Good. Map.
