R. Horwood    Plan of the Cities of London and Westminster, the Borough of Southwark, and Parts Adjoining.. (sheets E1 & F1) 1799
99.5 x 55cm

London - The City, Shoreditch, Hoxton, Bethnal Green. Richard Horwood's 32 sheet map of London was an impressive achievement, showing Georgian London in great detail at a scale of 26 inches to the mile. Publication took place in stages, 7 sheets being issued by January 1795, but the rest dated 1799 after the survey was re-financed by the Phoenix Assurrance Company. Each individual house is delineated with its street number (at least where the street numbering system had been adopted). Sheets E1 and F1 are here conjoined to cover an area roughly encompassing the northern part of the City of London, Hoxton, Shoreditch and Bethnall Green. Original colouring to parks, and ward and parish boundaries. Slight soiling, but would frame up well.
