A New PLAN of the CITY and LIBERTY of WESTMINSTER, Exhibiting all the New Streets & Roads, with the Residences of the Principal Nobility, Public Offices, &c. Not extant in any other Plan.
This map is by Thomas Jeffreys, an exceptional cartographer and publisher whose productions, including maps of North America, are considered to be among the finest of his age. This map shows the new developments in Westminster by use of a colour coding system indicating varying stages of completion. Portman Square (W1), a contemporary development, was begun the year before this map was published. It was built between 1764 and 84 for the landlord Henry William Portman on what was then considered the outskirts of town.
Plan of London, West.r and Southwark, w.th y.e Riv.r Thames, as they were survey.d and publisht by Authority toward y.e latter end of y.e reign of Queen Elizaabeth, or about y.e year of our Lord 1600.
This is the fourth edition of Braun &Hogenberg's map view of London. The title in cartouche at the foot of the plate replaces the figures of merchants from the earlier editions. Tudor arms feature at top right, with the city arms at top left and descriptive notes at bottom right and bottom left. Published in Hatton's 'A New View of London; or, an Ample Account of that City', the map is similar in detail to the 'Copperplate Map', the earliest printed map of London of which no complete copy survives. Merchant ships, cranes, mills, bull- and bear-baiting pits, the large tennis courts at Westminster and the stags in St. James’s are examples of London's business and leisure activities. Walled gardens, elegant churches and livery halls testify to the high quality of life enjoyed by its citizens.
