Ordnance Survey R.O. Jones    Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 1885
£17
27.5 x 35cm


These maps by Lt. R. Owen Jones were produced by zincographic transfer to accompany the 1885 Boundary Commissioners Report showing the proposed new divisions of the counties for parliamentary and local government purposes. Once the Act had passed they were re-issued as part of the Parliamentary Accounts and Papers for the session of 23 October 1884-14 August 1885. This example is from this re-issue, so distinguished by a small piece of paper stuck over the word "proposed" (the changes having now passed into law.) Original colour.

Ordnance Survey    Ordnance Survey New Series, Sheet 62 1880
£40
49 x 35.5cm


Central Yorkshire. It took some 70 years for the OS to publish its complete, first series of one inch maps of England and Wales (known as "The Old Series") , the last northern counties being issued in 1874. Even before this landmark was reached, however, the Survey had, in 1863, already authorised work on a new, updated survey based on a single projection, involving changes to many sheetlines, and re-numbering of sheets throughout. The resulting 1" maps are known as the "New Series" and were issued from 1887, before eventually evolving, with further changes, into the "New Revised Series". Our map is sheet 62 of the New Series (previously sheet 93 NW under the Old Series enumeration), and was published (from an electrotype) in 1880. It covers an area roughly encompassing Fountains Abbey (Studland), Easingwold, Rufforth, and Harrogate. It is dissected into 6 linen-backed segments, and is in good condition.

Ordnance Survey    Publication not known. 1868
£35
22.5 x 33.5cm


Hertford. This map was one of a series produced by the Ordnance Survey following the passsing of the Representation of the People Act of 1867. The Act extended the suffrage to all householders, and also made many changes parliamentary representation. In the case of Hertford, this meant reducing the number of MP's elected by the borough from two to one. Changes to parliamentary boundaries were also proposed, which brought about the subesquent inclusion of the suburb of Bengeo within the Hertford borough boundaries. The map was produced by zincography, and bears the signature of Henry James, Director-General of the Ordnance Survey from 1854 to 1875. Original colour.
