Wenda Fleischmann - Chapman and Andre Maps of Essex

First published in 1771, this is the first accurate and detailed map of Essex, engraved from a full survey using 'modern' methods. At two inches to the mile it reveals the county, virtually house by house, as it was before the drastic changes brought by railways and industry in the 19th century. This facsimile reprint, made in 1970, is to the highest possible standard on specially made paper. Highly decorative when mounted as a wall display, the map is a vital source for the local historian and a topic of endless discussion.

Hand painted by Wenda Fleischmann.
