Treacher’s New Ordnance Plan for Brighton.



Out of stock


London: H & C Treacher, n.d. [1880s?] Fold-out linen backed colour map of Brighton in red blind embossed boards. Being an exact reduction from the New 25 inch Ordnance Map Revised to date of publication from surveys made especially for this map. Drawn and Engraved at Bacon’s Geog! Estab! 127 Strand London. Dimensions of the map are 630mm x 870mm.

Very Good. Some of the folds have tiny holes from wear that have been expertly reinforced. Corners lightly abraded, some insect damage to cloth on the top of the front board.

H & C Treacher was founded in Brighton in 1858 and became a successful local booksellers, printers and stationers. I was unable to locate a copy of this map using the Worldcat catalogue. However I did locate one copy published by Bacon in 1875 held by the Bibliothèque Nationale de France; presumably the same Bacon’s Geog! Estab! printed on the bottom right hand border of this map.
