KING'S LYNN

by Henry James


Drawn up by Colonel Henry James of the Royal Engineers and published by the Boundaries Commission in 1868.

Printed at the Ordnance Survey Office, Southampton, England in 1868 using the zincograph printing process, a recently devised form of lithography using zinc plates to replace stone.

An original 19th century antique map of King's Lynn, Norfolk, England and the surrounding area.

Covers King's Lynn, Wiggenhall St Germans, Wiggenhall St Peters, Wiggenhall St Mary Magdelen, Clenchwarton, Gaywood, West Winch, South Wooton and numerous other settlements.

The map is very highly detailed and includes individual buildings, hamlets, villages, roads and much more.

The whole country was surveyed for the Boundaries Commission as an update to the 1832 reform bill survey - a major shake-up of the nation's parliamentary representation.

The map is on a scale of one inch to a mile and is accompanied by a brief survey report on a separate sheet with interesting information on population and housing etc.

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

Fine condition other than some light soiling to the lower border area as seen, free of repairs or restoration. No folds, blank verso.

Approx. 13" x 9" (330mm x 220mm) printed area only, with margins beyond to facilitate mounting/matting and framing.
