SKU: 9199 Categories: , Tags: ,

Lithographed plan of London, sheet size 71 x 96 cm, original hand colour, dissected into 28 panels and laid on linen, folding into slightly dusty maroon cloth boards with publisher’s paper label.

This map is a variant of the London plan typically issued with Kelly’s Directory, and our example seems to have been customised for internal use by employees of the Great Eastern Railway. A paper label pasted to the top left corner of the map contains a legend detailing charges to be levied by the GER on goods received in the differently coloured zones; the title is also printed on a paper label. Hyde, Printed maps of Victorian London, 61 (27).
