Insurance Plan of London Vol. XI: sheet 321

1 : 480 This detailed 1899 plan of London is one of a series of twenty-eight sheets in an atlas originally produced to aid insurance companies in assessing fire risks. The building footprints, their use (commercial, residential, educational, etc.), the number of floors and the height of the building, as well as construction materials (and thus risk of burning) and special fire hazards (chemicals, kilns, ovens) were documented in order to estimate premiums. Names of individual businesses, property lines, and addresses were also often recorded. Together these maps provide a rich historical shapshot of the commercial activity and urban landscape of towns and cities at the time. The British Library holds a comprehensive collection of fire insurance plans produced by the London-based firm Charles E. Goad Ltd. dating back to 1885. These plans were made for most important towns and cities of the British Isles at the scales of 1:480 (1 inch to 40 feet), as well as many foreign towns at 1:600 (1 inch to 50 feet).

A guide for Cuntrey men In the famous Cittey of LONDON by the helpe of wich plot they shall be able to know how farr it is to any Street...

This 1593 map is the direct forbear of the modern London A-Z. This copy comes from the 1653 edition of John Norden's 'Speculum Britainiae' (literally: 'Mirror of Britain'), re-issued after Norden's death and sold by Peter Stent of Newgate. Around the edges of the map appear the coats of arms of the twelve most influential and wealthy city guilds: the 'Great Liveries'. Guild members became known as liverymen because they wore a distinctive livery or uniform. At top right is the Merchant Tailors company, which made tents and padded tunics during the middle ages. This is reflected by the tent motif on the coat of arms. Norden, John

the Cittie of London 31

This map has been attributed to Augustus Ryther, an engraver who prospered between 1572 and 1592, contributing to Saxton's Atlas of 1579. This plan was produced to satisfy a European market, and contains certain inaccuracies which a native Londoner would not have tolerated. The streets appear very much wider than they were in actuality. Houses are depicted as having large gardens, when these had, in fact, begun to disappear from London two centuries before. The map details the gap at the north end of London Bridge, caused by a fire in 1632. Ryther, Augustus

the Cittie of London 32

This map has been attributed to Augustus Ryther, an engraver who prospered between 1572 and 1592, contributing to Saxton's Atlas of 1579. This plan was produced to satisfy a European market, and contains certain inaccuracies which a native Londoner would not have tolerated. The streets appear very much wider than they were in actuality. Houses are depicted as having large gardens, when these had, in fact, begun to disappear from London two centuries before. Due to the scarcity of maps of London this rather misleading map was printed several times. This is the second edition. The map-seller's imprint has been removed and a large compass rose has been inserted. The Globe playhouse has been omitted on this edition, because of the theatre's destruction in 1644. Hoge Lane, Bedlam and Finsbury Fields have also been added. The map is shows the water conduit near Fleet Bridge, an important link in the water supply line from St Pancras. Ryther, Augustus
