A Plan of the Grand Canal from the Trent to the Mersey

Anon. from The Gentleman's Magazine 1771.  7 3/4" x 15 1/4".

A very good example, free of the heavy offsetting so often found with this map. Opened in 1771, although not completed until 1777 with the construction of the Harecastle Tunnel, the Trent and Mersey Canal was engineered by James Brindley, part of his ambitious plan to connect the four major rivers of central England.
