Image size: 22 3/4” x 37, plus margins

Condition is generally for good for its age, considering this is a folding map printed on paper. Two noticeable tears running along folds at the top of the map, though these are outside the coloured area of the town centre itself.

Bound with the map is A Guide to Brighton and its Neighbourhood by G.W. Bacon, FRGS. This appears to have been published circa 1893, predating the map itself,  and is therefore consequently out of date as, among the gazetteer of public buildings, it still includes the Chain Pier - destroyed in a storm in 1896 - though makes no mention of the Palace Pier, opened 1899. Bacon's Guide was presumably old stock acquired by Treacher and bound in. An ephemeral item and scarce in any condition.
