A full colour map based on a digitising of a large-scale map of York surveyed in 1850. The map shows the main medieval and post-medieval buildings in this attractive and interesting city including the Minster , York Castle (Clifford's Tower), St mary's Abbey and the well-known city walls. The map's cover has a short introduction to the city's history, and on the reverse of the map an illustrated gazetteer of York's main buildings and sites of interest. Combining clear cartography and extensive research, this is a revised version of a map first published in 2012.
The new edition is presented as a cased folding map, to match those of Winchester, Oxford and Hull in the series. Of interest to historians and those who know and love York, the map charts the process of renewal and development which has shaped one of England's most important cities.
