    Tirion’s map of London is reduced from John Rocque’s large-scale 16 sheet survey of the city and ‘near ten miles round’ of 1746.

    This detailed version of the map extends between 5 and 10 miles round Charing Cross (described rather quaintly in the title as ‘over an hour’ away).

    Condition & Materials

    Copper engraving, 28.5 x 42 cm, original hand-colour, slight toning where previously mounted, bottom left hand corner torn with loss (affecting margin only, not printed area), blank verso.
