Bacon's New Chart of the World - Mercators Projection

£149.99

Product description

Wonderful map made up of separate paper pieces attached onto a linen backing, giving it detail and durability. Made circa 1910. The covers have had a little wear in the hundred-or-so years since. Some bumping, and spine is fraying a little at either end. Gilding holds up well, and the maroon covers are in great shape.

The map, once folded out, is quite solid and highly impressive, suffering only with two small holes. Both can be seen on the right edge of the folded book, appearing to be singe marks. As said, otherwise a great item.

Oxfam Shop Frodsham Street

We are a city centre store in the heart of Chester. We consist of two shops joined together. 

In our book shop we sell a variety of items from rare stamps and coins to first edition books. There is always something to be bought; whether it's a new novel for a long bus journey, a DVD to have a lazy sofa day or a postcard with a beautiful picture of our idyllic city. 

In our clothes shop we sell women's, men's and children's clothes and accessories. Whether you want a new dress for a day at Chester Races, new clothes you won't have to worry about getting covered in mud, or a tie for that important interview; we have it here at Chester. 

We also sell home wares; such as collector's items, linens and children's toys. Whatever you need why not pop into Frodsham Street and help support a fantastic cause.
