CRUCHLEY, G[eorge] F[rederick].


24 Miles round London. 1838.

Map diameter 64 cm, overall dimensions 69 x 71 cm. A very pretty circular map of the environs of London, showing the extents from Ware down to Dorking and East Tilbury across to Windsor. Original outline colour to the map, primarily demarcating the county boundaries. The two and three penny post boundaries ringed in blue. Scrolled leaf desgin to the spandrels. The whole dissected into twenty eight sections and mounted on linen, green marbled paper to folded end sections on linen verso. The map folds into matching marbled green paper slipcase with publisher’s printed label to upper board. The slipcase very worn, one spine distressed, marbled paper panels on map verso worn. Some light staining to the map, but otherwise a decent example.
