Old London Map by Danet 1727
This remarkable map offers extraordinary detail in its depiction of the city of London, including an extensive descriptive legend in the bottom section, two vignettes in the lower two corners and a compass rose. It is a stunning example of a map from the early 18th century which shows northerly Islington down to Lambeth on the south bank of the famous Thames River; and then from East to West from Hyde Park across to Mile End. In the top-hand left corners, is an explanation, in French, of London and its most important buildings. Below the map itself is a list comprising over 100 significant features shown on the plan including streets, churches, public buildings, hospitals and gateways. The map further includes grid lines for easy referencing.
