The Great Exhibition in Hyde Park was over and the Crystal Palace had been removed to Sydenam in Kent. To take advantage of the move and sell his map to excursionists Mogg updated a map he first published in 1805. Edward Mogg was a cartographer who flourished in the early to mid 19th century. He worked from 51 Charing Cross and engraved and published a number of fine maps of London.
In Britain Charles Darwin publishes this "Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection". In America the first oil well is drilled and Queensland becomes a separate colony in Australia. London's population had now risen to around 2,800,000.

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.
