1080 x 1330 mm., dissected and laid on original canvas with two marbled end papers, in full original wash colour, with original green cloth slipcase in good condition.
This large scale map of what is now greater London is the eighth state of ten and was originally published by John Walter Froggett in 1831. The third state in 1840 was published by George Frederick Cruchley (1797-1880). Constantly updated this map is dated lower left in the margin January 1st. 1863. Darlington & Howgego list the first four states up to 1850 and the ensuing work by Hyde described the following six. The map extends from Hertford to Chatham, Tonbridge to Bagshot. An ornate border frames the map which overlays it in several places. The counties boundaries are all highlighted in outline colour with all except Middlesex in wash colour. It is published at the large scale of about one inch to the mile. Hyde does not cite an example of this edition in a public institution.
