ORDNANCE SURVEY-continued. superintendent of the Ordnance Surveys. The official Catalogue of the numerous maps on sale may be had of the principal London agents, Messrs. Longman and Co. Paternoster Row, and Mr. Edward Stanford, Charing Cross.
It may be convenient to state here, that the principal Series is the ONE-INCH GENERAL MAPS OF ENGLAND AND WALES, which is in 110 divisions (size 40 in. by 27). Of these, 95 are completed, including all the counties excepting Cumberland, Durham, Northumberland, Westmoreland, and Yorkshire, which are in progress, but are not unlikely to occupy the next five years. These 95 divisions are published at 2s. each plain, 4s. coloured, and 2s. extra if mounted on canvas for the pocket; or coloured and mounted in an oak case, 301.
A sequence to the above, published at the same rate, is the ONE-INCH MAP OF SCOTLAND, arranged in counties; and the ONE-INCH MAP OF IRELAND, both as yet very imperfect, but proceeding regularly. The following are indications of a few other of the Ordnance publications. Particulars must be sought in the official Catalogue.
SIX-INCH COUNTY MAPS of ENGLAND, (size 40 inches by 27), of which only two are completed, viz. Lancashire, on 119 sheets, 247.; Yorkshire, 311 sheets, 691. 7s. 6d. Durham is to be 58 sheets, of which 20 are published at 4l.
SIX-INCH COUNTY MAPS of SCOTLAND, (40 in. by 27), of which only seven counties are complete, viz.
Edinburghshire, 25 sheets, 47. 17s. 6d. Fife and Kinross, 41 sheets, 8l. Haddingtonshire, 22 sheets, 47. Kirkcudbrightshire, 58 sheets,117.128.6d. Linlithgowshire, 12 sheets, 17. 17s. 6d. Rossshire, &c. 49 sheets, 97. 12s. 6d. Wigtownshire, 38 sheets, 77.
SIX-INCH COUNTY MAPS of IRELAND, (40 in. by 27). Of this series the whole 32 counties are completed, viz.
Antrim and Carrickfergus, 68 sheets, 137. 2s. 6d.
Armagh, 32 sheets, 57. 15s.
Limerick, 60 sheets, 127. 10s. Londonderry, 49 sheets, 91. 17s. 6d. Longford, 27 sheets, 51. Louth, 25 sheets, 47. 15s. Mayo, 123 sheets, 267. Meath, 53 sheets, 107. 17s. 6d. Monaghan, 34 sheets, 67. 7s. 6d. Queen's County, 37 sheets, 81, 2s. 6d. Roscommon, 56 sheets, 117. 17s. 6d. Sligo, 47 sheets, 97. 2s. 6d. Tipperary, 91 sheets, 201. Tyrone, 68 sheets, 13. 15s. Waterford, 40 sheets, 8. 15s. Westmeath, 40 sheets, 87. 10s. It will be seen, that Ireland alone, on this six-inch scale, amounts to above 350%. without binding. By the time that Great Britain is completed, the entire set will cost upwards of a thousand pounds!
It must be sufficient here merely to intimate some of the other Ordnance publications.
TWENTY-FIVE-INCH PARISH MAPS, (nearly one square inch to an acre). Of English Parishes, only 10 in Northumberland, 14 in Westmoreland, 3 in Surrey, 5 in Hampshire, 68 in Durham, and 1 in Lancashire, have been completed. Of Scottish Parishes, 46 in Ayrshire (complete), 33 in Berwickshire (complete), 1 in Buteshire, 43 in Dumfrieshire (including Gretna), 20 in Forfarshire, 13 in Linlithgowshire, 11 in Peebleshire, 17 in Lanarkshire, 17 in Roxburghshire, 3 in Selkirkshire, and 15 in Renfrewshire. And of Ireland, none. The cost of each Parish varies, according to the number of sheets, from 7s. to 81. Ss.
SIXTY-INCH TOWN MAPS. Of these, about 60 English have been completed, of which the principal are: Blackburn, Bolton, Bradford, Halifax, Huddersfield, Hull, Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Preston, Rochdale, Sheffield, Wakefield, Warrington, and York; at an average, perhaps, of 21. 2s. each. But London occupies 799 sheets, and therefore at 1s. each, costs 391. 9s. Only 17 Scottish towns are complete, of which the principal are, Berwick, Edinburgh, Dumfries, and Peebles. Of the Irish towns, only Dublin is yet published, price 47. 10s.
