The Joseph Gilmore Map of Bath, BoBC

This map depicts the city still largely contained within its medieval walls. It provides a fascinating glimpse of the city before the transformation of the Georgian period. Around the border are illustrations of the various lodging houses and inns that provided accommodation for the 17th century visitors to Bath. The map also contains intriguing details including as the fives court (a game involving hitting a ball against a wall) located just outside the west gate.
