W. Faden    A Topographical Map of the County of Sussex 1799
£135
78.5 x 36.5cm


In 1795 Thomas Gream published a one inch map of Sussex on 4 sheets, the majority of the survey work being done by W. Gardner and T. Yeakell, who were also given access to survey data of the Ordnance Survey. As often occurred with one inch maps, a reduced size version was subsequently issued, in this case by William Faden at the scale of 1/3rd of an inch to the mile. The map was engraved by I. (John?) Palmer. There were later editions in 1823, c1844 and c1850-60. This example is the first edition of 1799. It is dissected and linen-backed, folding into a slip case. Original outline colour. Slight off-setting.
