The map depicts a route in the form of 7 vertical strips with a compass rose showing orientation; also shown are distance in miles initially from York and then from Manchester, towns, churches, windmills, coal pits & rivers .

On hand laid paper, delicately enhanced with later hand colouring and mounted ready to frame in an ivory coloured mount.



For greater detail please view further close up images.

A most attractive map which would frame well.

Measuring approx 9" x 7.5" ( 230mm x 190mm ) map area only. 13.5" x 11.5" ( 340mm x 290mm ) overall including mount.


Please note the map can be supplied without the mount if required.
