From The Dispatch Atlas.
A map of the counties of Leicestershire and Rutlandshire, with boundaries, turnpikes, and railways marked. A small information panel below the title describes the size and parliamentary divisions of the counties.
Between 1857 and 1863, the British newspaper The Weekly Dispatch published a series of maps. Over 100 maps were produced, and in 1863, the maps were gathered together to form The Dispatch Atlas. The atlas contained county and country maps, as well as several city maps. Each of the maps featured a distinctive image of a half-globe with a winged mercury above.
