A very attractive and scarce map of London in a circular format, dissected and laid on linen as issued. Extending North to South from Holloway to Clapham and East to West from the Isle of Dogs to Bayswater. Of interest is the inclusion of Chelsea Bridge which was as yet unbuilt and had only been authorised by Act of Parliament in 1846. The projected location of Lambeth Bridge is also marked but is unnamed, only being completed in 1879. The site of new Houses of Parliament which were under construction at the time, is shown and Buckingham Palace is named the Queen's Palace. Also shown is the Thames Tunnel which was started in 1825 and completed in 1842. The whole map is surrounded by an elaborate foliate border and is provided with a 154 point key to numbered and lettered locations on the map. In the top left corner is a fine engraving of the new Houses of Parliament minus the central crossing tower, and in the top right corner is an engraving of the New Royal Exchange which at that time served as the Stock Exchange.

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.
