A large and detailed plan of Manchester, marking the planned developments in the north east of the city. The insets are a plan of the city c.1650, the route from London to Manchester and the environs of Manchester.

Originally published by Laurent in 1793, Stockdale saw the potential market for this map and bought the plates the same year, using them to illustrate Aikin's 'Description of the Country from Thirty to Forty Miles Round Manchester'. The engraver was John Cary, who also became a successful map publisher.
