London. Guide to the International Exhibition 1862. London, 1862. Coloured wood engraving, printed area 765 x 1060mm. Original folds flattened with repairs, laid on canvas.
A large and detailed map of London, extending to Hammersmith in the west, Highgate, Bromley Greenwich Park and Stockwell. It was issued as a supplement to the ILN, 24th May, 1862, to coincide with the 'International Exhibition', the second of London's World Fairs after the Great Exhibition of 1851. Held on the site of the Natural History Museum, exhibits included parts of Charles Babbage's analytical engine, maritime and locomotive engines and William Morris's decorative arts. The exhibition attracted over six million visitors. Of interest on the map are the proposed bridge from Temple Gardens to Southwark; and the depiction of Battersea Park's original plan despite opening four years before with a different layout.

BOOTH, Charles. [Booth's Poverty Map of London]
Map Shewing Degrees of Poverty in London in Areas with about 30,000 inhabitants in each. Compiled from Information Collected in 1889-90. London: Stanfords, 1891. Colour-printed map. 630 x 880mm. Laid on light canvas.
A map of London colour-coded to show the percentage of the population under the poverty line, with areas marked between under 10% to 70%. It was published in the appendix to Booth's 'Life and Labour of the People in London', Volume II. Examples are uncommon due to the low quality of the paper used at the time. Booth (1840-1916), owner of the Booth Shipping Line, acted in response to an 1886 Pall Mall Gazette article that claimed that 25% of Londoners lived in poverty. Booth regarded this figure as wildly exaggerated, so recruited a team of volunteer researchers to compile an analysis of social conditions based on field visits and interviews with local police, clergy and employers. The first volume of 'Life and Labour' (1889), covering the East End, showed that 35% lived in poverty. The second series, covering the rest of the city (1891) showed that no less than 30 per cent of the city's total population could be classed as poor. HYDE: Victorian Maps of London, 254.

Booth, Charles. [The Isle of Dogs from Booth's Poverty Map of London]
Map A. - Isle of Dogs (1900). London, 1900. Lithographic map with original hand colour. Sheet 265 x 190mm. Binding folds flattened, key re-attached at bottom.
One section (of twenty) of an extended version of the incredibly influential Poverty Map, originally published in Charles Booth's 'Life and Labour of the People in London', a founding text of British sociology. Most of this sheet is taken up with the commercial buildings, with docks, wharfs, warehouses, iron works, 'Manure works' and other factories, but residential streets line the roads of the peninsula. Although the key gives seven colour codes for the degree of wealth of the inhabitants (ranging from black - 'Lowest class', through shades of blue and purple - 'Poor', 'Mixed', 'Fairly Comfortable', to red - 'Well to do' and yellow - 'Wealthy'), there is no sign of the two highest classes. Booth (1840-1916), owner of the Booth Shipping Line, acted in response to an 1886 Pall Mall Gazette article that claimed that 25% of Londoners lived in poverty. Booth regarded this figure as wildly exaggerated, so recruited a team of volunteer researchers to compile an analysis of social conditions based on field visits and interviews with local police, clergy and employers. The first volume of 'Life and Labour' (1889), covering the East End, showed that 35% lived in poverty. The second series, covering the rest of the city (1891) showed that no less than 30 per cent of the city's total population could be classed as poor. See HYDE: Victorian Maps of London, 252.

A map of Hampstead and St John's Wood, one section (of twenty) of an extended version of the incredibly influential Poverty Map, originally published in Charles Booth's 'Life and Labour of the People in London', a founding text of British sociology. Showing Hampstead, St John's Wood, Primrose Hill and Kilburn. The key gives seven colour codes for the degree of wealth of the inhabitants (ranging from black - 'Lowest class', through shades of blue and purple - 'Poor', 'Mixed', 'Fairly Comfortable', to red - 'Well to do' and yellow - 'Wealthy'). Booth (1840-1916), owner of the Booth Shipping Line, acted in response to an 1886 Pall Mall Gazette article that claimed that 25% of Londoners lived in poverty.
