BODMIN

CORNWALL

by Captain R.M. Parsons & Colonel Sir Henry James

Published London 1868

An antique map drawn up by Captain R.M. Parsons and Colonel Sir Henry James of the Royal Engineers, and  published for the Boundaries Commission of 1867/8, using the 19th century zincograph printing process. The map bears the facsimile signature of Henry James. 

The country was surveyed by the commission in 1867 to 1868 to update the boundaries set down in the earlier 1832 reform bill - a major shake up of the nation's parliamentary representation.

A scale of one  inch to a mile is used and the original outline hand colouring identifies the 1832 and 1868 boundaries.

The exceptional detail is best appreciated with the use of a magnifying glass and extends beyond Bodmin into the surrounding area and shows individual buildings,  farms, mills, villages and hamlets including Tresellan Mill, Scarlet Well, Pencarrow, Brownqueen.

 
Included with the map is a short survey report with fascinating details on population and  housing etc.  A wonderful record of mid 19th century Bodmin and surrounding district.

Credited within the plate. Fine unmarked condition. Please go to close ups to view a further image.

Measuring approx. 14" x 10" (360mm x 250mm) overall, on light grade paper, blank verso.
