About This Item

London: Published by Edward Wallis, 1830. Folio lithographed game board sheet (64 x 51 cm) mounted on linen in 16 sections, handcolored. Some smudges and light soiling at edges and some soiling and discolorations on the blank verso, but a good copy, without the sleeve and explanatory pamphlet. A popular board game, first published between 1826 and 1837, and kept in print into the 1840s, Occasionally, the details were updated: some examples include the Great Fire of Plymouth (1840) and the landslide at Lyme Regis (1839) - neither of which appear on this example. The game consisted of movement in turns around the board game through 151 playing spaces, starting at the Thames and concluding back at London. The spaces include representations of local landmarks and industries. A fine cartouche appears at the upper left, and the seas are populated with ships, a lighthouse, and a bird or two. Copies were originally issued with an instruction booklet, and a cloth sleeve for both (neither of which are present here).
