A NEW and CORRECT PLAN of the CITIES of LONDON, WESTMINSTER, and BOROUGH of SOUTHWARK wherein all the Streets, Roads, Churches, Public Buildings &c. to the Present Year 1791 are exactly delineated.
Map publisher and print seller Robert Sayer traded from Fleet Street in the latter half of the 18th century, first under his own name, and then under the joint imprint of Sayer& Bennett. This map has four-colour text panels in corners, including information relating to the recent Act for regulating Hackney Coaches. The development of turnpike roads in 1750 saw an increase of wheeled traffic, supplanting rivers as the main medium of transport. The map also features information about new rates for watermen introduced in 1785.The title of the plan states that it has been published as the "Act Directs”, a reference to the Copyright Act of 1734, used to curb the high incidence of uncredited copying among mapmakers.

A NEW and CORRECT PLAN of the CITIES of LONDON, WESTMINSTER, and BOROUGH of SOUTHWARK wherein all the Streets, Roads, Churches, Public Buildings &c. To the Present Year 1785 are exactly delineated
Map publisher and print seller Robert Sayer traded from Fleet Street in the latter half of the 18th Century, first under his own name, and then under the joint imprint of Sayer& Bennett. This is a later edition of Sayer& Bennett's 1781 map of London. Coloured outlines appear along the boundaries of the London Wall, Westminster and Southwark. References tables appear in all four corners, listing public buildings, churches and the parishes within the Bills of Mortality (those parishes who reported deaths to the central London government). Open land, such as parks and gardens, is highlighted in green. R. Sayer & J. Bennett

HARRIS'S PLAN of LONDON, WESTMINSTER and the BOROUGH of SOUTHWARK, with all the additional Streets, Squares &c; also the improved ROADS to the Year 1791.
This is the sixth edition of an original 1779map. Differences between this edition and the previous one suggest that the plate was re-engraved, at least in part, as new and proposed buildings have been added. Most strikingly, 20 proposed locations for fire stations are depicted, along with their catchment areas. The Metropolitan Fire Brigade was not formed until 1865. A number of different company brigades had co-operated with each other as the London Fire Engine Establishment since 1833. The failure of this service to stop the destruction of the Houses of Parliament in 1837led to criticism, increasing when a fire in Tooley Street raged for two days. Harris, John

This map is the seventh edition of an original plan of1779. Differences between the fifth and sixth edition five suggest that the plate was re-engraved, at least in parts, as additional buildings appear in the sixth edition, dating from 1791.This edition claims to show London as it was in 1794, although no discernible features distinguish it from the previous edition. An alphanumeric table of references and a grid of half-mile squares aids orientation. A small diagram in the bottom right corner instructs the user on how to use the grid. The bottom margin has been trimmed away, removing the print seller's imprint. Harris, John

The LONDON Guide or A Pocket Plan of the CITIES of LONDON, WESTMINSTER and borough of SOUTHWARK for the Universal Scots ALMANACK, with the New Buildings 1781.
This is a map from the Universal Scots Almanack. The area of the city is left white in comparison to the surrounding area, providing us with a rough outline of where the old London wall enclosed the city. By 1781, the date of this map, this Roman wall had been entirely demolished or built over. Most of the gates were pulled down in 1760/1. Newgate was the last to be demolished, surviving until 1777.

LONDON, WESTMINSTER AND SOUTHWARK, Accurately delineated from the latest Surveys,
John Cary was possibly the most productive maker and publisher of maps in England the 18 Century. His works were reissued many times, but unlike many of his contemporaries he aimed to update each new edition by including new developments. This is the second edition of a map originally published in 1782. The imprint and table of Hackney coach fares (referred to in the description) has been removed from the bottom of the map. Cary, John
