Penny Waistcoat Pocket Map of London , 1868

London 1868
steel engraved map; map size 18 x 25 cm, paper binding 4,5 x 6 cm.

This map shows London from Camden Town to Kennington, Paddington to Rotherhithe.

Little waistcoat map like this one are very rare and hard to find. They were meant to be used and carried in the pockets of a gentleman’s waistcoat. Due to their small size and constant usage, they were prone to be discarded once they fell apart. To find one in acceptable condition is rather scarce and makes them real collector’s items.

wear and tear; evenly browned; waterstained; edges frayed; one 4,5 tear; folds as issued; some blue stain to verso cover; o/w g cond.
