1 REDUCED SURVEY MAP OF KESWICK, GRASMERE, ETC.
LONDON JOHN BARTHOLOMEW & CO Hard Back VG Book 160x110mm Approx 
Reduced Ordnance Survey Map measuring approx 20x30 Inches Scale 1 inch to a Mile. Mounted on linen with publishers adverts three of the folded sections which in turn fold into green cloth covered boards with gilt lettering to front and further adverts to end papers. The boards are clean with only light shelf wear to extremities. The map is colour contour tinted and appears to have been wall mounted at some time having 4 small pin pricks to extreme corners. This has had the benefit of the map not being repeatedly unfolded and consequently is sound apart from one "+" fold where there is a 10x5mm split to linen along the fold. This is at top right and if reinforced would not be particularly noticeable.The map covers the area Skiddaw to Conniston Water North- South and Ennerdale Water Hawes Water West -East. Otherwise clean. Very Good. Ideal for wall mounting under glass in an attractive frame.
