STOCKDALE, John. [A late 18th century wall map of London]
A New Plan of London, XXIX Miles in Circumference. London: Stockdale, 1797-1809. Coloured. Four sheets conjoined, total 1020 x 1460mm. Publication line slightly trimmed at bottom.
A large and detailed map of London, first issued in 1797, this example updated c.1809 but retaining the original publication date. Engraved by S. J. Neele, the '29 miles' encompasses Kensington Palace in the west clockwide to Hampstead, Kentish Town, Clapton, Stratford, Poplar, Greenwich, Camberwell & Chelsea. This state has the East and West India Docks added and the planned Vauxhall Bridge and Road marked (opened 1816). The outline of Regent's Park, created when the farm leases expired in 1811, has yet to appear. Thus 'Jew's Harp House', a tea house mentioned in William Blake's epic poem 'Jerusalem', is still marked. HOWGEGO No. 213 1(a).
