From Canals to Early Steam Railways - A History In Maps

ISBN - - Hardcover - A4 (297 mm x 210 mm)
By the time George Bradshaw published his first iconic railway map in May 1839, Britain's major industrial towns of Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester were already connected to London. Such was the pace of railway building during the period, with new railway companies emerging across the country, that by the time many maps were published they were already outdated. In deciding to chronicle these early, steam powered railways to display the sheer pace of change we have created seven maps clearly showing each that was opened, along with summary narratives, for the years 1836, 1839, 1842, 1845, 1846, 1847 and 1848. The first section of the atlas presents a detailed look at the lay of the land at the time of the golden age of canals that had begun in the 1770's. The detailed map published in 1809 shows the established canal network, along with some of the early horse drawn Iron Railways, or "wagonways" as they were known. The building of such wagonways, like that at Ashby-de-la-Zouch connected to the Ashby Canal, was a major engineering achievement and became a model for future railways - with the harnessing of steam, most of the towns in the country wanted a railway connection within 30 years. Following the atlas pages of 1809 we present no less than 25 colour town plans prior to the arrival of the railways and the dramatic changes that ensued. They therefore offer a rare rural insight to the past. The atlas is lavishly illustrated with many thought provoking views and vistas from this bygone age that capture one of the most monumental periods of change in British history

A Collection of Four Historic Maps of Liverpool from 1785 - 1903

ISBN -
This folded map (890mm 1000mm when unfolded) is an ideal souvenir for tourists to Liverpool and also a valuable reference resource for local and family history research. The large map is titled "A plan of the Town and Township of Liverpool 1785 by Charles Eves. It has been reproduced in full colour for the first time working from the very rare antique original. What makes this plan unique is the names of all of the land and property holders written across the parcels of land, yet to be built upon that surround the main town of Liverpool. The township of Everton is a distant village, well detached from Liverpool by open fields. The other three maps feature Cole and Ropers Plan of Liverpool from 1805, a Bird's Eye View of Liverpool from 1866 and a more detailed Plan of Liverpool by Bartholomew showing the extensive Docklands in 1903. All the maps have been meticulously re-produced from antique originals and printed on 90 gsm "Progeo" paper which was specially developed as a map paper. It has high opacity to help reduce show through and a cross grain giving it greater durability to as the map is being folded
