This 179 year old hand-colored, engraved map is by J & C Walker. It was published under the superintenence of the SOCIETY for the DIFFUSION of USEFUL KNOWLEDGE (S.D.U.K.) in London by Chas. Knight & co. in 1830.
The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (SDUK), founded in 1826, and wound up in 1848, was a Whiggish London organisation that published inexpensive texts intended to adapt scientific and similarly high-minded material for the rapidly expanding reading public. It was established mainly at the instigation of Lord Brougham with the objects of publishing information to people who were unable to obtain formal teaching, or who preferred self-education.
The map is in very good condition with minor age toning. It is about 15" x 12 1/2" on a sheet that is 16" x 13". It is blank on back and signed in print.
This fine map is suitable for framing and would be an excellent cherished gift.
The map that is being offered is entitled:
"ENGLAND V - SOUTHEAST ENGLAND"
