I did not realise it was a wall map (stupid me!), but because I collect old railway maps it was a bargain and the chances of getting a 1839 map are nil.

I folded the wall map up like an OS map and it will fold into a A4 plastic wallet without any problems so long it is folded map style. If you want to fold a map properly go on You tube and there are some kind gentlemen that will demostrate this.

As a map it is very detailed and you will need a good magnifier to see the detail, must have been a masterpiece of engraving on a copper plate.

Having been doing some research into 1839 Railways I came across a review of this map in a copy of the "Railway Times" newspaper from 1839 recommending it to their readers. To my surprise I noticed within a couple of days that a reprint was currently for sale. Seeing that it was widely I found it was available on Amazon and purchased the map straight away. The quality of the reprint is much better than I expected and like the 1839 reviewer I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in early railways.

The map shows all the railways -fine. But it is crammed with them and not easy to pick out particular lines!

I spend hours looking at this contemplating the dullness my life has become.

It was rather too big to frame and hang on a wall . It has too be kept rolled up which is a shame
