HAMILTON, James. [One of the few maps of Chelsea]
A Map of Chelsea Surveyed In The Year 1664. London, 1810. Coloured. 295 x 440mm. Restoration on the bottom right corner.
Antique map of Chelsea extending from Knightsbridge to Fulham surveyed at a time when it was described as a 'village of Palaces'. Some landmarks remain: Chelsea Physic Garden, shown under the title 'Apothecarys Garden', Chelsea Old Church, Worlds End and the Kings Road. It is likely that 'James Hamilton' was the army officer and courtier made Ranger of Hyde Park in 1660, who died after losing a leg to a cannonball in 1673.
