Poster, GWR 'Devon - The Shire Of Kings' by J.P. Sayer, Q/R size. A most delightful map of Devon with host of inset caricatures and images of famous people, places and anecdotes.

Looks to have been used as publicity for the S.P. Mais 'Glorious Devon' booklet. Published by GWR Paddington No. 50 and printed by Jordiison. Folded with slight border loss top right and tear top left. A few pin holes and minor tears but a wonderful poster nevertheless.
