A first edition city plan of early 19th century London by Edward Langley & William Belch with 24 views of buildings, bridges and monuments decorating the top and bottom borders. The plan, which was published from 1812 to 1828, shows the greater London area from Hyde Park/Kensington Gore in west to Stratford in the east and from Pentonville and Hackney in the north to Vauxhall in the south. Colour coding is used and described in the bottom centre “Explanation of this Map” section to show various elements of the map such as boundaries of the cities of London and Westminster and Projected Works not yet completed, which are coloured in yellow and include Regent’s Park and two new bridges crossing the Thames. Among the scenes decorating the top and bottom borders are St. Paul’s Cathedral. the Tower, Westminster Abbey and the London, East India and West India Docks.
