Original Antique Map

         READING      
                  
by Robert Kearsley Dawson

Published 1832

An original 19th century antique street plan of the town of Reading,Berkshire  England.

 Drawn up by Lieutenant R.K. Dawson of the Royal Engineers and published by the Boundaries Commission in 1832.

The whole country was surveyed for the commission to support the 1832 reform bill - a major shake-up of the nation's parliamentary representation.

The map is on a scale of 4 inches to the mile affording great detail including individual buildings.

 It's interesting to compare the 19th century map with the much expanded Reading of the present day.

Enhanced with original hand colouring and a colour key to the various boundaries and wards.

Fine condition other than some light age toning, free of repairs or restoration.Fold line as issued, blank verso.

Approx. 12" x 11" (030mm x 280mm) overall (as depicted).
