Description:
Reduced version of Kerry Lee's famous pictorial map of Cambridge with the University buildings, as well as important figures from history who lived in Cambridge, illustrated and labeled. The elaborate border features the coats of arms of each of the colleges alongside depictions of famous figures associated with each college. The figures are charmingly drawn as if in conversation with each other.

Lee's large map of Cambridge was originally published to encourage train travel to the city. Other maps in the series included London, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Oxford. This version, smaller than the railway poster, was issued by Lee's own company as a commercial enterprise.

Printed colour. [CAMBS408]
