A mid-nineteenth century map of London

SCHEDA, Joseph.

London.
Vienna, 1846. Coloured. Dissected and laid on linen. 410 x 500mm.

A very attractive and scarce map of London in a circular format, extending North to South from Holloway to Clapham and East to West from the Isle of Dogs to Bayswater.

Of interest is the inclusion of Chelsea Bridge which was as yet unbuilt and had only been authorised by Act of Parliament in 1846. The projected location of Lambeth Bridge is also marked but is unnamed, only being completed in 1879. The site of new Houses of Parliament which were under construction at the time, is shown and Buckingham Palace is named the Queen's Palace. Also shown is the Thames Tunnel which was started in 1825 and completed in 1842.
The map is surrounded by an elaborate foliate border and is provided with a 154 point key to numbered and lettered locations on the map. In the top left corner is a fine engraving of the new Houses of Parliament without the Clock Tower of Big Ben. In the top right corner is an engraving of the New Royal Exchange which at that time served as the Stock Exchange.
