WYLD, James.


A New Map of the Country Twenty Five Miles Round London. [c. 1872].

Map dimensions 102.5 x 118.5 cm, overall dimensions 108 x 135 cm. Large folding map of the environs of London showing the extents from Hertford down to Dorking and Chelmsford across to Beaconsfield. Bright original colour primarily marking out the counties, though the parks and railways also highlighted. The whole dissected into 72 sections and mounted linen, marbled paper to folded end sections on linen verso. A nice bright example of the map.

Numerous editions of this map were published, originally by Faden, later editions by Wyld. District Line appears to be shown running up to Mansion House, according with Hyde’s “third” state.
