London: James Wyld, 1844. Map dimensions 36.5 cm x 79.5, overall 40.5 x 83 cm. Folding map of the county with original colour in block and outline, marking out the county boundaries, rapes, principal roads, railways etc., dissected into 14 sections and mounted on linen, marbled paper to the folded end sections, folds into the original diced brown cloth slipcase with the publisher's printed label to the upper cover. A little bit of toning and offsetting to the map, the case with mild wear and fading, very good overall. Reduced from the original map by Gream and William Gardner of 1795, itself revised from the survey of Gardner and Thomas Yeakell of 1778. Gream's reduction was first published in 1799, published by Wiliam Faden. The map was subsequently reissued by Faden and his successor as Royal Geographer, James Wyld, through the first half of the 19th century with amendments such as the inclusion of the railways.
