Seller: Top-Rated Seller mitchmap50 (5.307) 100%, Location: Fairlight, Ships to: Asia, US, EuropeanUnion, CA, AU, Item: 303031404921 A genuine original handcoloured Geological Survey map, Sheet LXXV N.E. (Harlech). It is the map that includes Snowdon towards the top left corner. A superb example, very clean, with wonderful colouring, not least the gold Lodes, which I hope show up in my photographs. Geological maps were handcoloured into the 20th century, a time-consuming business that concerned the Geological Survey of England and Wales until colour printing was able to speed up the process. This example is of a genuine Victorian age, the embossed stamp at the top stating that it was prepared in August 1869. The printed imprint bottom left states that it was published in 1851/1854, having been surveyed by AC Ramsay, AR Selwyn, WT Aveline, & JB Dukes. The base map is an Ordnance Survey first series, dated 1840. A magnificent and striking document that should delight both the geologist and the mountaineer.I am also selling the adjacent sheet to this, which includes part of Anglesey, dating from the same time. Size: the sheet measures 61cms x 45cms.Condition: The map itself is in a very good condition, with wonderful handcolouring. There is a slight weakness along the platemark bottom left, but otherwise a very clean example.
