Old London map describing all the new improvements circa 1847. This attractive map of the country around London was first published by William Faden in 1810, James Wyld acquiring the plates on Fadens death in 1836. This map dates to 1847 and it shows how the railways, marked in red, had rapidly expanded in the few years since London's first railway from Greenwich to London bridge opened.
The Corn Laws are repealed in 1846. The planet Neptune was discovered by Couch Adams of Cambridge and Urbain Le Verrier of France. In 1847 in London the Communist League is founded by Marx, Engels & Born. The USA gains Texas, New Mexico & California, ceded from Mexico, in 1848. London's population rises to over 2,000,000.

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.
