LEWIS, Samuel

A Topographical Dictionary of England ... Supplementary Volume, Comprising a Representative History of England, With Plans Describing the Electoral Divisions

S. Lewis and Co., 87, Aldersgate-Street, London, 1835
Quarto (280 x 225 mm.), full contemporary green cloth, marbled effect to cloth, gilt title to spine. With typographic title, pp. (2), viii, 81, (1), (2), 5, (1), with 116 engraved maps numbered in roman all in early outline colour, comprising 42 of the English counties and 74 plates of the towns and boroughs, many more than one to a page, in good condition.
FIRST EDITION. For the third edition of Samuel Lewis’ ‘Topographical Dictionary’ a new series of maps was added. This was to reflect the Reform Bill of 1832 and the changes to local government boundaries. The draughtsman was again Robert Creighton with the plates engraved by John and Charles Walker. The maps were derived from those of Robert K. Dawson produced for the Bill. They comprise those of counties along with all the boroughs and town plans. All are collected into the fifth volume, the only one offered here. They are bound by county, many of the town and borough plans are in detail and of towns of which very little at all would have been produced prior. Hampshire is bound under ‘S’ for Southampton. Provenance: With inscription of ‘John Bullen 3 New Inn Strand 16th January 1836’ on first free endpaper. Carroll (1996) 104; Chubb (1927) 464.
