I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 70 inches wide (175cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options. Please note that the 24x30 inch unframed map has white edges that can be easily snipped off (or they may help you with framing). All other sizes, and all framed maps, look just like the listing images.
The model in the listing images is holding the 20x16 inch (50x40cm) version of this map.
Many of the towns, villages and cities in Essex are already visible in this old map, such as Colchester, Chelmsford and Braintree. There's a detailed engraving of Audley End House, then the seat of Lord Braybrooke.
The southwest part of Essex in this map borders London, which means this map also includes some north and east London towns and villages including: Hackney, Newington, Tottenham, Deptford, Greenwich, Barking, Walthamstow and Waltham Forest.
Some of the other Essex towns and villages that can also be seen on this map include: Romford, Brentford, Chigwell, Basildon, Billericay, Clacton and Wivenhoe. But of course, many of them are spelt in their Early Modern English forms.
Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your hometown!
Somewhat unusually, this map also includes polling locations for county elections, parishes, churches, windmills, watermills, railways and much more.
This would make a wonderful gift for someone from Essex or who has Essex in their heart.
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.
This is the cheapest place to buy my maps online.
I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
