The first Ordnance Survey one-inch map was published in 1801. Starting in the south of England, sheets for the whole of England and Wales were available by the early 1870s, and were frequently revised and updated.
Now known as the Old Series, the David and Charles reprints offered here are late states, useful for showing the expansion of railways and major towns in the nineteenth century.
Each folded black and white map is roughly 2′ by 3′ when open, and has an introductory essay by Brian Harley describing how the map developed.
We have copies of the following maps folded in covers, in good condition. All are £7.50 each post free.
