J. Aiken    A Description of the Country from Thirty to Forty Miles Round Manchester 1795
£235
83 x 77cm


The Environs of Manchester. John Aikin (or Aiken) was a doctor who also pursued literary interests, and produced this work in his fifties. The volume contained several maps including this large folding map at a scale of 1/2inch to the mile. The map is centred on Manchester and covers most of Cheshire, the southern half of Lancashire, the Derbyshire Peak District, and the south-west corner of Yorkshire. There is no attribution to cartographer or engraver on the map, but John Cary is a fair bet (stylistically and because he provided the town plan of Manchester included in the work). Slight wear along one of the fold lines with a couple of small holes where folds meet, but otherwise in nice, clean condition.
