Froggett's survey of the country thirty miles round London circa 1832. This 1832 edition of Froggett's survey is one of the last maps covering the land surrounding London before the spread of the railways. Within 15 years the area covered by this map was crisscrossed by railway track. The map extends from Windsor in the west to Basildon in the east and Goldalming and Guildford in the south to Hertford in the north.
An interesting feature of the map is that it shows the enclaves of various counties such as that of Hertfordshire between Chalfont St Giles and Penn in Buckinghamshire and the part of Kent that is north of the river Thames in the East Ham Levels.
In London in 1833 a law was passed that limited to 12 hours a day that children 12 and over could work. Children 9 to 13 could only work for 9 hours a day. In AMerica Virginia rejects the abolition of slavery.
The population of London in the census of 1831 was 1,474,000.

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.
