 London Maps 

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.

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 ($838 • €742 rates)


Anonymous. [A design plan of the new Sand Hills Estate, St Pancras]

A plan of the Sand Hills Estate, which straddled what is now the Euston Road, with each house delineated. The part north of the Euston Road has now been redeveloped with the British Library and King's Cross Station, but south of the road much is recognisable but renamed: Euston Road is simply 'The New Road'; Cartwright Crescent is named here 'Burton Crescent'; and Hastings Street is 'Spelhurst Street'. Judd Street and Leigh Street have retained their names. The estate was developed by The Skinners' Company, a medieval trade guild of the furriers, one of the 'Great Twelve' livery companies of London.
