- Notes: An original antique map of Chichester in 1831. This map was drawn up by the well known cartographer Lieutenant Robert Kearsley Dawson (R.E.), with lithography by R. Barker.
Robert K. Dawson, who was commisioned to the Royal Engineers and between 1819 and 1829 took part in the triangulation and mapping of Ireland and Scotland under Thomas Colby, was recalled to England to survey the boundaries of the proposed Parliamentary Boroughs for the Great Reform Act; producing a series of one-inch and two-inch maps.
This is one of those 'two-inch to the mile 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.
Affixed to backboard is a piece of text; City of Chichester Page 67. 'Report on the City of Chichester, with a Description of the Proposed Boundary'.
