Printed map. Visual scale [66 mm=15 English miles]. In the bottom right corner, there is content pertaining to the Western and Eastern Divisions - the places of election and the polling places. Originally published in Fisher's County Atlas of England and Wales, Compiled from authentic Surveys, and corrected to the present time..., [1842-1845]. Described in Chubb, Printed Maps in the Atlases of Great Britain and Ireland, entry DIV, p. 338-340: "A very nicely prepared atlas, began, apparently, by James Gilbert of Paternoster Row whose name and imprint appear on the plates of the first seven county maps. On maps 9, Gloucester, and 10 Oxford, Gilbert's name is given in the bottom left-hand corner; but the imprint is that of Fisher, Son & Co. All the maps which have Gilbert's name were engraved by J. Archer, and published for the proprietor, M. Alleis; but when Fisher & Co. took up the work the maps were drawn by F. P. Becker & Co., and 'Engraved on Steel by the Omnigraph. F. P. Becker & Co. Patentees,' is given in the bottom right-hand corner of the plates. The only legend, however, on the maps of Cumberland and Westmorland is Fisher's imprint." Acquired as part of the Banks Collection.
