Manuscript copy of the map City of Bath after Joseph Gilmore

DESCRIPTION: Manuscript pen and ink (hand drawn) map of the City of Bath, England after an earlier map by Joseph Gilmore in 1731. On heavy paper. Likely mid-20th century. Differs from Gilmore's original map of Bath in that fewer buildings are shown on the border of the map.

Gilmore's original elaborate map of the city of Bath shows Bath still largely contained within its medieval walls. The map indicates the growing popularity of Bath as a destination for visitors in the early 18th century. Around the border of Gilmore's map are views of 36 lodging houses or other public buildings. The map was reissued 6 times between 1694 and 1731.
