Norden SussexJohn Norden.
Sussexia sive Southsex, olim pars Regnorum.
[London, 1637.]
Engraving  with later colour.  The left and right hand margins have been trimmed and re-margined, not affecting the printed surface.
A map of Sussex engraved by William Kip for Camden's Britannia, first published 1607, but his example from 1637, with number '10' added.
While most maps in the Britannia were copied from Christopher Saxton's maps, this is derived from one by John Norden, who tried and failed to complete his own set of county maps. His printed map of Sussex, issued 1595, is known through only one surviving example, in the Royal Geographical Society. Those maps Norden did complete were regarded as superior to Saxton's and were copied for both the Britannia and Speed's Theatre atlas.
The Sussex map is wider that most of the maps in the Britannia, so are frequently trimmed at the sides when the binder evened-off the edges of the atlas.
220 x 390mm.

Bowen: SussexEmanuel Bowen.
An Accurate Map of the County of Sussex
[London: Robert Sayer, Robert Wilkinson and Carington Bowles., 1785.]
Engraving  with original outline colour.  Repaired tears to the margins.
A large-format map of Sussex, published in the 'Large English Atlas', with views and town plans are of Chichester and Lewes, and decorations of surveying instruments including a 'way-wiser' and a putto folding a theodolite.
This atlas was the best county atlas of the 18th century, with maps by Emanuel Bowen, Thomas Bowen and one, Middlesex, by R.W. Seale. Beginning in 1749 the original plan was to publish one map each month until the series was completed, but this proved to be too ambitious and the 45 maps were not completed until 1760. It is interesting that there were no geographical changes to the maps during their long publication period; the only changes were to the publisher's imprints beneath the bottom border. Usually the title cartouches illustrate the produce and industry of the county. Each is packed with notes of local interest.
510 x 850mm.

Brighton & The Chain Pier from the Pier Head.
Drawn & Lithog. by C. W. Wing. Published by W.m Tuppen Royal Marine Library Brighton. [n.d., c.1830.]
Lithograph  with later hand colour 
The Brighton Chain Pier was built in 1823 and was the first major pleasure pier to be built in Britain. It was primarily intended as a landing stage for packet boats to Dieppe, but it also featured a small number of attractions including (initially) a camera obscura. It became a major attraction: King William IV landed on it, J.M.W. Turner and John Constable painted it and it was even the subject of a song. The pier was destroyed by a storm in 1896.
