OXFORD

by Robert Kearsley Dawson

Published 1832

An original 19th century antique plan of Oxford, 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 upper map is on a scale of 1 inch to a mile and the lower at 4 inches to the mile.

There is much detail here and it's interesting to compare with the much expanded Oxford of the present day.

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

Fine, clean condition, free of repairs or restoration. No folds, blank verso.

Approx. 13.5" x 8.5" (340mm x 210mm) printed area only within the plate mark. (as depicted)

Overall sheet size approx 21" x 16" ( 540mm x 400mm)

A GENUINE ORIGINAL ANTIQUE MAP GUARANTEED OVER 180 YEARS OLD FROM LINDISFARNE PRINTS
