The London Directory or New Plan of London, Westminster & Southwark. Taken from the original antique copper engraved map printed in 1792 and published by Robert Sayer of No.53 Fleet Street. This clearly engraved map was first published in 1771 by John Bowles and engraved by J.Ellis. At the lower margin of the map is a "Table of references to the churches and other public buildings showing their situation in the above plan"
In England the trial began of the Bounty mutineers. Overseas the French revolution was in full swing and there was a concern by some that it would spread to London. The Ottoman Empire was forced to cede the Crimea to Russia, the echos of which reverberate today. In the United States the Bill of Rights became Law. The population of London had now reached around 1,000,000 from approximately 700,000 in 1750.
All prices include VAT and Free UK Shipping.
We make our own frames from moulding hand finished in our workshops. The standard finish is a distressed black with a gold slip inserted for the larger maps.
We finish the moulding in two other colours, Antique Red and Antique Green. These colours can be used on any of our prints or maps, both reproductions and originals, but have been chosen specifically to suit some of the antique prints and illustrations.
Some of the maps are very big so for weight, shipping and safety reasons we use 3mm acrylic as the glazing material.
