- Notes: An original, antique lithograph of Chichester in 1831. This map was drawn up by the well known cartographer Lieutenant Robert Kearsley Dawson (R.E.).

This is one of those maps produced; printed in 1831 by J. Netherclift for the Ordanance Survey, it shows Chichester as it was some 185 years ago.
This piece has been nicely mounted, framed and glazed; with hanging attachments on the back.
