This is an original 1882 black and white relief line-block map of the Isle of Wight, which is the largest island of England, and located within the English Channel. The island has a very interesting history, including a brief stint as its own independent kingdom during the 15th century. The island has also been home to multiple poets including Alfred Lord Tennyson and to Queen Victoria herself. The Island also played a crucial role during the seven years war. The Island was used primarily as the main spot where British Soldiers departed on raids against the French coast
