Anonymous. [A broadsheet antique map of roads between Greenwich & Woolwich]
A Plan of several Roads between Lord Cardigan's Corner on Black Heath, and Woolwich Warren. c.1760. 270 x 560mm. Some faint toning.
An odd sketch antique map, orientated with north to the top, comparing the different routes from Lord Cardigan's Corner, on the edge of Greenwich Park, through Charleton to Woolwich Warren, the old name for the Royal Arsenal. The roads, crossing Blackheath and Woolwich Common, are now Shooters Hill Road (A2 and A207) from the A205 to Greenwich Park, the A205 from Shooters Hill Road down to Woolwich, and the B210 through Charlton. 'Lord Cardigan's Corner' was Park Corner House, an addition to Montague House, the Earl of Cardigan's estate on on the edge of Greenwich Park. It would seems this map was drawn for his benefit. It appears the map is unfinished: a little vignette ship sits in the middle of blank space, roughly where the Thames would be.

ROCQUE, John. [A reduced version of Rocque's landmark map of London]
To Martin Folkes Esq.r President of the Royal Sociery: This Plan of the Cities of London and Westminster and Borough of Southwark, with the Contigious Buildings; is humbly Inscribed by his most humble Servants John Pine and John TInney. London: John Ryall, John Bowles & Son & Thomas Bowles, 1763. 515 x 940mm. Minor repairs to edges.
A reduction of Rocque's monumental 24-sheet map of London, here on one sheet, albeit an unusually large sheet of paper for the period. With the plan engraved by Isaac Basire and the letters by R.W. Seale, it was apparently published as an advertisement for the full-size map: the text under the map transcribes the endorsement of Folkes and Davall, two members of the Royal Society, for the accuracy of Rocque's trigonometrical survey. First published in 1749, this example comes from the third state; only the publication line has been changed. Usually a map of this size would have been printed on two sheets and then joined. Producing a map of this size needed not only a large sheet of paper, but also a large copper printing plate and press. HOWGEGO: 100. (3).
[Ref: 14977]    £4,000.00 ($5,164 • €4,544 rates)


LE ROUGE, Georges-Louis. [Georgian plan of London]
Plan nouveau et correct des villes et fauxbourgs de Londres et Westminster et du bourg de Southwark avec la campagne adjacente, et les grands chemins nouvellement construits &c Paris: Le Rouge, c.1770. Coloured. 300 x 490mm.
Scarce plan of London and the suburbs with the adjacent countryside and the newly built highways.
[Ref: 18633]    £750.00 ($968 • €852 rates)


HORWOOD, Richard. [Knightsbridge from an important large-scale survey of London]
[Knightsbridge.] London: 1794. 565 x 525mm.
A plan of Knightsbridge from what Howgego describes as the 'largest and most important London map of the eighteenth century', on a scale of 26 inches to a mile. It shows Hyde Park and the Serpentine, with Knightsbridge, the Brompton Road and Sloane Street. Horwood's intention was to mark each house's number (a practice started in 1735), but this was abandoned as impractical. He started his scheme in 1790, expecting to be finished by 1792: by 1794 he was apologising to his subscribers (including George III); in 1798 he received a loan of £500 from the Phœnix Fire-Office, for whom Horwood worked as a surveyor, to finish the map. However this assistance was not enough to stop Horwood dying in poverty in 1803. HOWGEGO: 200, and pp.21-22.
[Ref: 14121]    £600.00 ($775 • €682 rates)


HORWOOD, Richard. [A detailed plan of Fitzrovia with a view of the 'New Road']
[Fitzrovia .] London: 1793-4. 565 x 525mm. Very fine condition.
Sheet 1B from Horwood's survey of London, on a scale of 26 inches to a mile, covering Fitzrovia, in an early state, with a separately-printed propect of the country north of 'The New Road from Paddington' (Euston Road), which was dropped from the completed map. The area mapped is from Tottenham Court Road west to Devonshire Place, marking Fitzroy Square (without the central garden in the completed map). There is little development north of the Euston Road, but of interest is 'Jews Harp House', a coffee house that was a hot-bed of Jacobin insurrection. William Blake refers to it and the farm shown nearby in his poem 'Jerusalem': 'The Jews-harp-house & the Green Man; / The Ponds here Boys to bathe delight: / The fields of Cows by Willans farm: Shine in Jerusalems pleasant sight'. Within twenty years both had disappeared as the area was developed as Regent's Park. HOWGEGO: 200, and pp.21-22, the 'largest and most important London map of the eighteenth century',
