Plan Of London And Westminster With The Borough Of Southwark
W.Faden / J.Wyld - London - - 103 x 56.5 - Original colour - "Plan Of London And Westminster, With The Borough Of Southwark; Reduced From The Large Plan In Forty Sheets". This large and detailed map of London extends from Islington in the north to Camberwell in the south, and from Hyde Park in the west to the East India Docks and the River Lea in the east. This example bears the imprint of "Jas. Wyld (successor to W.Faden) Geography To His Majesty, Charing Cross East, 1835" beneath the title and would appear to be a later edition of William Faden's 1818 map (although the imprint does not match exactly with the Howgego reference). As such, this map contains a wealth of current information presented in a clear and functional manner - this edition of the map shows the London and Greenwich Railway that had been given parliamentary approval in 1833 and opened in 1836. Beneath the map an extensive gazzetteer identifies streets and important public buildings. Minor wear at old creases, nevertheless a generally good example of this map of London before the arrival of the railways in earnest brought a growth explosion to the capital. Unusually this map, intended as a dissected and folded publication, remains in original, uncut form. - cf. Howgego, Printed Maps Of London, 272 (14).
