This is fine reprint wall covering of a striking city plan of London presents the city during the Industrial Revolution when the population of the city was around 1.4 million. Through a three-year effort of surveying this map depicts streets, bridges, public buildings, squares, parks, rivers, gardens, fields, and even windmills that made up the city.

Below the map is a decorative cartouche dedicated to His Majesty, King George IV, which is flanked by explanations of the map and two superb views of St Paul's Cathedral and Westminster Abbey.

This map appears in its rare first state and would be updated for six more editions until the year 1854. Of the many maps of London produced over the centuries, this work by Christopher and George Greenwood remains one of the most impressive and lovely of all cartographic works.

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
