Peninsula Wars Intelligence Map of Spain and Portugal

Superb Full Size, 38 inches x 53 inches, Laminated Copy of Peninsula Wars Intelligence Map by Jasper Nantiat, 1810.

Peninsula Wars Intelligence Map of Spain and Portugal

Following the cancellation of a major exhibition, this is a unique opportunity to acquire a full size laminated copy of   “A new map of Spain and Portugal: exhibiting the chains of mountains with their passes, the principal & cross roads, with other details requisite for the intelligence of Military Operations”  compiled by Jasper Nantiat, 1810.  


This laminated map combines the four Nantiat maps into one large map, 38” x 53”. Excellent for either wargamers (laminated so will accept non permanent pen ink), historical reenactment, historical research or a collector of Napoleonic or Peninsula War items. It was produced at great cost and was destined to be displayed on a wall with paintings of each battle and their relative locations on the map. 
A fascinating and superb map. I cannot better the explanation of this map in the following link;-

Mail Coach Pistol/Blunderbuss Related Painting

MAIL COACH - ORIGINAL SIGNED WATERCOLOUR PAINTING by BEVAN RIDER of MAIL COACH IN FLOODS NEAR NEWARK

MAIL COACH - ORIGINAL SIGNED WATERCOLOUR PAINTING by BEVAN RIDER of MAIL COACH IN FLOODS NEAR NEWARK

An original pen, ink and watercolour, gouache painting, "Floods Near Newark". Painted and signed circa 1980 by Bevan Rider to illustrate his 1984 book on "The Story of the Royal Mail Coaches - A More Expeditious Conveyance", this watercolour is the original illustration which appears on page 95 in the chapter describing the London- Edinburgh Mail which frequently encountered flooding near Newark en route. The book recalls that the Newark bridge crossing was often liable to flooding resulting in the ‘up’ Mail Coach in midwinter having to negotiate these floods in darkness leaving the passengers cold and wet even if they took the precaution of standing on their seats with their backs arched against the roof! Sometimes the floods were just too deep resulting in the Mail Coach Guard having to wade in or swim, unhitch the leading horse, remove mails from the box and proceed on his own to the next stage. He would probably have taken his pistols or blunderbuss with him as well!    


The painting measures approx 15 inches by 11 inches. It is in good condition but with some bumping and creasing at the corners, some pinholes at the edges (most likely from the artists drawing board). Painted on a Watercolour Board.
