MAP of the BOROUGH TOWNS and SHIRES of ENGLAND with the Number of Members Returned to Parliament

Copper engraving with original hand colour; drawn, engraved and published by John Andrews, December 1st 1797, as Plate XVI of John Stockdale's, Geographical Atlas of England, 1809.

Image size: 13 1/8" x 10 1/8" plus generous borders.

Generally good condition throughout.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this map is the information it displays regarding the return of MPs to Westminster: the whole of Essex sent only 8, whereas Wiltshire elected 30 - including 2 from the 'rotten borough' of Old Sarum. Scarce.

 

£135.00 Unmounted/unframed.
