Description: Sifton, Praed & Col. London, 1935.Annotated map.Cloth-backed, with 32 compartments.V.g./No Jacket.A hand-coloured composite ordnance survey map issued by Sifton, Praed of 67 St.James's Street, London S.W.The front cover label is annotate ""SOUTH WALES showing Powell Duffryn Takings, Paul Brassey"" in ink within a printed labeland is dated 1935.The map shows the location of mines and the concessions applicable to each of the workings.Some areas are outlined in different colours; the overall extent of the coal measures is shown by a thick red line.The mine interests of coal owner Paul Brassey, a descendent of the Victorian railway engineer Thomas Brassey (1805-1870), were nationalised in 1948.It may be significant that the map could have been drawn up a few years after the passing of the Mines (working facilities and support) Bill of 1923 which legislated to overcome the problems caused by excessively subdivided mineral rights that had prevented the development of new coal mines.
