London
Published under the Superintendence of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge. 1844 . Map dimensions 35 x 64.5 cm, overall dimensions 40 x 65 cm. Folding map of Central London showing the extents from Holloway down to Battersea New Town and Bow Creek across to Earls Court. Vignette views of the Tower from London Bridge and London from Holloway to the upper left corner adjacent to title. Original colour to the parks and bodies of water, the boundary of the City of London marked out in red. Along the lower edge a comparative chart of the heights of the principal buildings. The whole dissected into 10 sections and mounted on linen, folds into original black cloth slipcase with gilt lettered dark red morocco label to upper board. Trivial wear to extremities of the case, the map paper ever so slightly toned, a particularly nice example. No printed date on the map itself, the date above taken from the gilt lettered label on the case.
