This is a very decorative little sheet with a map on either side. On recto is the detailed map of Wiltshire with a key listing the twenty-nine hundreds and showing market towns, roads, villages and forests. The title above the map, The Road from London to Weymouth com Dorset, seems to have nothing to do with the map of Wiltshire or the road map that is on the verso, which covers the road through Northfolk to Newmarket and St. Edmundsbury.


Condition: B

Remargined at bottom with some cello tape in margins on verso.

Estimate: $130 - $160
