1320 x 1050 mm., early wash colour, dissected and laid on contemporary linen, plain endpapers, with publisher’s slipcase, marbled paper with original publisher’s printed label affixed, in good condition.
Research appears to show that the first edition of this map was in 1823. Further editions were published as this one in 1831, 1835 and 1841. It is the work of Edward Mogg (fl.1804-47) who began his career around 1804 with the publication of a plan of London and Westminster. Indeed, much of his life was spent publishing road books and maps relating to the streets of London. This particular large-scale map is drawn at about 9 miles to the inch. This edition bears no railways as it is just still a little early for them. Provenance: manuscript annotation on slipcase title unidentified but dated 1832; private collection of Rodney Shirley.
