EAST SURREY

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 four inches to a mile is used and the original outline hand colouring identifies the 1832 and 1868 boundaries.

The detail extends from the City of London south through Wandsworth, Clapham , Reigate to Crawley, west to Hayes, Cobham & Dorking and east to Woolwich, Bromley & Seven Oaks.

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

Fine condition. Dated within the plate ( 1868).

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