Langley & Belch's New Map of London.
1812 - London, 1812. Original colour. Folding map, dissected and laid on linen as issued; 530 x 800mm. An uncommon map of London, with 24 vignette views of buildings. On the map and illustrated are the West & East India Docks, opened 1802 & 1806 respectively. Of interest is the attention paid to 'Projected Works', coloured yellow. These include: Regents Park and the 'Intended Road' running south (although still showing Jew's Harp tea rooms and Willans Farm, both mentioned in William Blake's 'Jerusalem'); Waterloo Bridge and the southern approach roads; 'Regent Bridge', now Vauxhall Bridge, and the Vauxhall Bridge Road; and the Duke of Bedford's development around Tavistock Square in Bloomsbury. HOWGEGO: 256, plate 13. First state.
