Cruchley's Improved Environs of London. London, c.1827. Coloured. Dissected and laid on linen, as issued, total 585 x 580mm. Minor wear at folds.
Detailed map of the environs of London, cut down from a larger map by the publisher, with a decorative border with the title stuck on, a device sometimes used to market two versions of the same map. The extents are Hounslow in the west, clockwise to Watford, Waltham Abbey, Epping, Romford, Dartford, Shoreham, Epsom and West Moelsey. Variant of HOWGEGO 299.
[Ref: 13737]    £800.00 ($1,040 • €920 rates)


CRUCHLEY, G.F. [A late-Georgian map of London]
Cruchley's Improved Environs of London. London, c.1827. Original colour. Dissected and laid on linen, as issued, with slipcase. Total 585 x 580mm. Linen folds with small splits.
The environs of London, extending to Hounslow in the west, clockwise to Watford, Waltham Abbey, Epping, Romford, Dartford, Shoreham, Epsom and West Molsey. Cruchley has used an interesting publisher's trick: he has used a separately-printed decorative border, which includes the title and keys, so he could market the same map in different shapes. Variant of HOWGEGO 299.
[Ref: 15495]    £650.00 ($845 • €748 rates)


CRUCHLEY, G.F. [A plan of London during the reign of William IV]
Cruchley's New Plan of London Improved to 1832. London, 1832. Original colour. Dissected and laid on linen as issued, total 560 x 1440mm. Repairs to linen at folds.
A decorative map of London, extending west to Hammersmith and Kensal Green, north to Regents Park, east to Bromley-by-Bow and the East India Docks, and south to Kennington and Chelsea. Of interest is the line of the 'Proposed London and Greenwich Railway', not opened until 1936. The decorative border, which contains the title, is on strips of paper pasted over the edge of the map: thus Cruchley could market the same map in different formats. Engraved in the lower border is an an advert: 'This map can be had on the same scale to extend to Highgate, Hampstead, Clapton...' HOWGEGO: 304, C 1a.
[Ref: 17046]    £3,250.00 ($4,225 • €3,738 rates)

A decorative map of London, extending west to Hammersmith and Kensal Green, north to Regents Park, east to Bromley-by-Bow and the East India Docks, and south to Kennington and Chelsea. Of interest are the outline of the streets in the new development at Notting Hill, and the new railway lines coming into London, including dotted lines added in manuscript for proposed lines. The decorative border, which contains the title, is on strips of paper pasted over the edge of the map: thus Cruchley could market the same map in different formats. Engraved in the lower border is an an advert: 'This map can be had on the same scale to extend to Highgate, Hampstead, Clapton...' HOWGEGO: 304, C state 8.
