13. OUT OF PRINT. Baker's New Map of the Town and University of Cambridge, 1830. Reprinted with an introduction by Sarah Bendall.

A high quality black and white facsimile of one of the most important maps of Cambridge, capturing a period of dramatic topographical change.

Richard Baker‘s New Map of the University and Town of Cambridge, published in 1830, is an exact and very detailed snapshot of the topography of the city and its surroundings as they were in that year; it extends from Chesterton to Grantchester. Drawn on a large scale, about nine inches to a mile, it is one of the most accurate and beautiful examples of Victorian catography.

Baker claimed it was drawn from recent surveys, and Dr. Bendall’s detailed examination supports this – a building demolished in 1828’s (King’s provost’s lodge) is not there, buildings in the process of being constructed (St Johns, New Court) are there.
