BIRMINGHAM
London, Published by W.Edwards 12, Ave Maria Lane.
J.Archer.
No. CXXIX. PINNOCK'S GUIDE TO KNOWLEDGE. PRICE ONE PENNY.
Printer's imprint verso; R. Clay, 7 Bread-street-Hill, Cheapside. 

Woodblock engraving by Joshua Archer (1792?-1863) published in weekly parts in The Guide to Knowledge edited by W Pinnock...London: W.Edwards 1833-34. 
The unusual printing method, whereby the engraved woodblock was inked with a roller without working the ink into the engraved cuts resulting in a white line on a black ground, was not suited to to topographical maps and plans and the method was not used again commercially.

A good, clean example.
