Published by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge in 1843 this is a very decorative map of the geology of England & Wales as it was then known. It was arranged by Roderick Murchison who was the president of the Royal Society. The father of geology is generally recognised as James Hutton, a Scottish farmer and amateur naturalist but the first large scale geological map in the world was produced by William Smith in 1815 of the England and Wales with part of Scotland. Unfortunately for him his maps were copied and his prices undercut and he ended up in debtors prison in 1819 and all his assets seized and sold. Modern geological maps closely follow his system of mapping.

 Framing Information
We make our own frames from moulding hand finished in our workshops. The standard finish is a distressed black with a gold slip inserted for the larger maps.

We finish the moulding in two other colours, Antique Red and Antique Green. These colours can be used on any of our prints or maps, both reproductions and originals, but have been chosen specifically to suit some of the antique prints and illustrations.

Some of the maps are very big so for weight, shipping and safety reasons we use 3mm acrylic as the glazing material.
 Product Information
We specialize in supplying original maps and reproductions of the rarer maps, all dissected and hand laid onto 100% natural cotton cloth. All of them are supplied in handmade slipcases covered in marbled paper taken from our collection of original papers dating back to circa 1700.
