WYLD, James. [London during the Great Exhibition of 1851]
Wyld's New Plan of London. London, 1851. Original colour. Wood engraving, 560 x 940mm. Minor repairs to folds.
A detailed plan of London, marking the 'Crystal Palace' of the Great Exhibition on the south side of Hyde Park. The borders contain eleven vignettes of notable buildings, including the Great Exhibition buildings and 'Mr Wyld's Model of the Earth in Leicester Square'. 'Wyld's Great Globe' was a 60-foot diameter hollow globe with the surface of the Earth, complete with mountains and rivers, modelled in plaster of paris on its interior. Visitors would climb an internal staircase for viewing. James Wyld (1812-87), the publisher of this map, originally proposed this attraction for the Great Exhibition in Crystal Palace, but it was judged too big and commercial for that show. Therefore Wyld acquired a ten-year lease on land in Leicester Square gardens and built it there. At first it was a great success, but the novelty wore off; after the lease was up Wyld could not find a buyer for the attraction and so the globe was sold for scrap.
