CRUCHLEY, G.F.
Cruchley's New Plan of London Improved to 1846. London, 1846. Original colour. Dissected and laid on linen as issued, total 560 x 1440mm, folded into the original publisher's slipcase.
A decorative map of London, extending west to Hammersmith and Kensal Green, north to Regents Park, east to Bromley-by-Bow and the East India Docks, and south to Kennington and Chelsea. Of interest are the outline of the streets in the new development at Notting Hill, and the new railway lines coming into London, including dotted lines added in manuscript for proposed lines. The decorative border, which contains the title, is on strips of paper pasted over the edge of the map: thus Cruchley could market the same map in different formats. Engraved in the lower border is an an advert: 'This map can be had on the same scale to extend to Highgate, Hampstead, Clapton...' HOWGEGO: 304, C state 8.
