Please note that this is a historic item and may show typical signs of age, including small blemishes, creases, marks and stains. Wherever possible, obvious damage was sympathetically restored using Adobe Photoshop. Please examine the product images on this page carefully prior to ordering. In particular, the left hand side of the map is stained due to the way it was stored.
The original map was scanned at 600 dots per inch (DPI) and is slightly smaller than A2 paper size. The final full-sized image is 13,051 by 9,789 pixels.
Once purchased, you will have access to the following files to download:

All JPEG images were saved with 3% compression to ensure minimal loss of quality. The files are stored in a ZIP archive to ensure that they download without error.
If you wish to print it out, it is recommended that you use the PDF file and have it professionally printed onto a sheet of A2 paper to retain the dimensions of the original map.
Please note that if you are using a mobile phone or tablet, you will need to use an application that displays images in their original native resolution rather than downsampling them.
