Paterson's Twenty Four Miles Round London with Reference to the Seats of Nobility and Gentry. This decorative antique copper engraved map was produced by Capt.Daniel Paterson (1739-1825) for the publisher Carrington Bowles in 1791. Choosing the distance of twenty four miles as the extremity of his map was deliberate in that it was considered to be the distance a traveler could journey in to London and back in one day. This edition of the map is not listed in Howgego which has the earliest edition as 1800.
In London Thomas Paine publishes his Rights of Man. 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.
