A fine Dutch plan of London, published to celebrate William III of the House of Orange-Nassau and his wife Mary becoming joint monarchs of England after the Glorious Revolution of 1688. Their portraits appear lower right, within garlands decorated with oranges. Top left putti place Williams's crown on top of the English royal arms.
Underneath the map is a detailed prospect of London, centred on Wren's St Paul's Cathedral. At the time of publication the building was still not complete and so the depiction here bears little resemblance to the finished building.
