A new & improved map of the county palatine of Lancaster, divided into hundreds, manors, & parishes, shewing all the mail, turnpike & cross roads, rail roads, canals, etc, also, the seats of the nobility, gentry, etc, etc, to which is added the population of every town, borough, parish, village, hamlet, etc, according to the latest returns made by act of parliament.

Scale one-inch to one mile. Published, by G.F. Cruchley...1st July, 1836.

Designed as a single map measuring 54" wide by 82" tall, and issued on six sheets, in three rows of two sheets, lacking the lowest sheet on the right. Dissected on cloth with pale blue ribbon edging, and folding to 9.5" wide by 13" tall.

All sheets are in good clean condition, with some offsetting on each sheet, more on some than others. We understand that these uncoloured copies are less common than coloured maps.

All of the county is present except the SE of the map, an area roughly south of Wheelton, Darwen and Rawtonstall and east of Penkett, Haydock, Standish and Coppull (i.e. Manchester, Bolton, Rochdall and Oldham are lacking).

Decorative title top right sheet. Middle left sheet is obviously part of the whole, but has a border with heading : 'Port Fleetwood (Lancashire) with railway to Preston & London' in top margin and railways north of Preston engraved in outline. Middle right sheet has the 'Explanation' (legend). Lower left sheet has railways to Liverpool and Preston shown.

Five sheets : Sorry, sold.
