Originally handcoloured almost 400 years ago, this is one of the finest examples of this map that I've ever seen.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (31x41cm), 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm) and 24x36 inches (61x91.5cm), but it looks even better when printed large.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 37x50 inches (94x127cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 24x18 inch (61x45.5cm) version of this map.
If you’re looking for something slightly different, another option would be this amazing map of the same area by Greenwood & Co. in 1829.
Many of the towns, villages and cities in the historic and ancient county of Sussex, including West, Mid and East Sussex are already visible in this map - including: Worthing, Bognor Regis, Littlehampton (then just called Hampton), Horsham, Cuckfield (Haywards Heath), East Grinstead, Crawley, Hastings, Brighton, Hove, Bexhill, Cuckmere Haven, Seaford, Crowborough, Uckfield, Lewes, Arundel, Petworth, Amberley, Lewes, Ditchling, Ashdown Forest, Worth, Ardingly, Rye, Shoreham and many more. 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! Feel free to message me if you want to confirm if a certain Sussex town or village is on this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, work leaving or housewarming gift for someone from Sussex or who has Sussex in their heart.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.
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.

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.
