ANTIQUE MAP: CRUCHLEY’S RAILWAY MAP OF CORNWALL SHOWING ALL THE RAILWAYS & NAMES OF STATIONS, ALSO THE TELEGRAPH LINES & STATIONS, IMPROVED FROM THE ORDNANCE SURVEYS.

CRUCHLEY, G.F. (George Frederick), 1797-1876 : CRUCHLEY’S RAILWAY MAP OF CORNWALL SHOWING ALL THE RAILWAYS & NAMES OF STATIONS, ALSO THE TELEGRAPH LINES & STATIONS, IMPROVED FROM THE ORDNANCE SURVEYS.

London : G. F. Cruchley, 1855. An attractive map of the county on a scale of approximately four miles to the inch, giving good detail of the new railway lines extending to Penzance and St. Ives, with further detail of the polling places, the borough boundaries and indications of boroughs returning one or two members to parliament, etc. Beneath the overlay of updating and revision, the underlying map remains that first produced by John Cary (1755-1835) some fifty years earlier. With a separate inset map of the Scilly Isles.
Lithograph on paper, with original hand colour. Printed surface 482 x 546mm (approx. 19" x 21-1/2”). Folding into the original Cruchley yellow paper wrappers; wrappers a little worn and creased; some minor wear to folds; a few slight nicks and chips to outer edges of map; a few slight marks, but overall in very good state for a scarce and ephemeral item. With the contemporary bookseller’s label of George Wills Hearle (1824-1907) of Fore Street, Devonport, on upper wrapper.
