TOWER OF LONDON HMSO Hardcover Poor Map 230x230mm Approx. 
Hard Cover , Cloth boards with marbled endpapers, mounted in sections on linen. 1" to 1 mile. The map appears to part of two sections of an OS Map measuring 2'x2' when extended. The area encompassed is Tiverton to Chard West- East bottom section and Minehead to Huntspill West East in the top section. The covers are worn and faded and the linen is weak at folds.There are also some ink markings to some of the sections.Someone has put the date 1809 in ink to top but this is clearly not the date as the Somerset and Bristol to Exeter Railway lines are shown. Despite this the map would look good mounted and framed behind glass.
