SKU: hobs/beds/001 Category:

An interesting 19th century fox hunting map of Bedfordshire which was produced by J. & C. Walker and published in Hobson’s* Fox Hunting Atlas; Containing Separate Maps Of Every County in England **(London: J. & C. Walker, 1849-1882).

**The maps from this series, which are lithographic transfers, were taken from the original steel plates engraved by J. & C. Walker for their ‘British Atlas’ (first published in 1837) Additional information was then added so as to highlight the ‘places of the meeting of foxhounds’ and to display the county’s various hunts — in the case of Bedfordshire, this includes the Oakley, the Cambridgeshire and Mr Brand’s. The map also lists the county’s population, the number of M.P.s returned and shows the extensive railway network that existed in the late 19th century.
