An uncommon, old outline coloured, large folding map of London by Robert Sayer with views of buildings, prospects and other information related to the cities on its borders. The map, which appears to have been first published 1775 and updated at least twice thereafter, shows the greater London area from Hyde Park/Portman Square in west to Limehouse in the east and from Pentonville and Bethnal Green in the north to Vauxhall in the south. The map details useful information relating to the cities including a table of one-shilling rates for Hackney Coaches, rates for Watermen and a table with key identifying wards and parishes. Among the scenes decorating the borders are a Prospect of St. James Palace, a Prospect of the Queen’s (Buckingham) Palace, coats of arms of the City’s 12 principal livery companies, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and a view of the cities of London and Westminster. Blank verso, dissected and laid on to linen folding into a dark green leather book with some age. The map has an old varnish finish (perhaps for use in the rain) and has a few small holes and tears, the largest of which is in section with the image of St. Pauls’s. Overall, this map of London that rarely comes on the market is in good condition. 57 cm x 106 cm
