London, 1861. Wood engraving, printed area 520 x 1330mm.

Binding folds flattened, minor repair in bottom margin.

A very detailed 'balloon-view' of London, engraved by Robert Loudan after Thomas Sulman.

On the north side of the Thames landmarks include Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park Corner, the Clock Tower of Big Ben, Trafalgar Square, St Paul's Cathedral, Monument and the Tower of London, with Regent's Park, Hampstead and Highgate in the distance. On the south side of the Thames are Lambeth Palace, Bethlem Royal Hospital (now the Imperial War Museum), Waterloo Station, St George's Circus and Elephant & Castle.
