The First Edition of this incredibly detailed map of London, on a scale of 8 inches to a mile. The extents are Kentish Town in the north, clockwise to the River Lea, Greenwich, and Kensington. Under the map is a dedication to George IV, a key and inset views of Westminster Abbey and St Paul's Cathedral. In later editions the dedication was moved to the title, with this florid script replaced by further mapping.
Brothers Christopher & John Greenwood spent three years on their new survey of London, capturing Thomas Cubitt's plans for the development of Belgravia, outlines of new roads in Bayswater, the completion of the Grand Surrey Canal (1826) and Regent's Park the year before completion (1828). The plan was then engraved by James and Josiah Neele.
