Newcastle Upon Tyne, Uk, Street Plan, Dawson Original Antique Map 1832:
NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE
by Robert Kearsley DawsonPublished 1832
An original 19th century antique street plan of Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland, England.
Drawn up by Lieutenant R.K. Dawson of the Royal Engineers and published by the Boundaries Commission in 1832.
The whole country was surveyed for the commission to support the 1832 reform bill - a major shake-up of the nation's parliamentary representation.
The upper map is on a scale of 1 inch to a mile and the lower at 4 inches to the mile.
There is much detail here including individual buildings and it's interesting to compare the 19th century map with the much expanded Newcastle of the present day.
Enhanced with original hand colouring and a colour key to the various boundaries.
Fine, clean condition, free of repairs or restoration. No folds, blank verso.
This large paper format is superior to the numerous folding editions which are so prone to offsetting and wear.
Approx. 13.5" x 8.5" (340mm x 210mm) printed area only within the plate mark. (as depicted), with good margins beyond.
