Cruchley's New Plan of London and its Environs.

Cruchley's New Plan of London and its Environs.

London: Cruchley Mapseller (from Arrowsmith's), 38 Ludgate Street, St. Paul's, 1830. A fine large plan of London in three horizontal parts, measuring approximately 121 x 134 cm if conjoined (including the large decorative border), full wash colour in block and outline, each third of the map dissected into 18 sections and mounted on linen, folds into the original green marbled slipcase with a Cruchley's printed title label to the upper panel. The slipcase worn but sound, a very good example of a beautiful map. Showing the extents from Highgate down to Dulwich and Stratford across to Hammersmith. Howgego, 317a, (3). The third edition of a map first published two years earlier. One of Cruchley's largest and most decorative plans of London, he had issued variations on smaller scales and extents in the years prior to this. Cruchley was quite possibly spurred into producing this larger and more decorative plan by the appearance of the Greenwoods' magnificent plan of the city in 1827. Item #44425

Price: £8,000.00
