An early 19th century large scale map of London

CARY, John.

Cary's New and Accurate Plan of London and Westminster, the Borough of Southwark and parts adjacent; viz. Kensington, Chelsea, Islington, Hackney, Walwortth, Newington... and Plans of the New London & East & West India Docks.
London, 1811. Original colour. Dissected and laid on linen, as issued, total 820 x 1510mm.

Repairs to linen at folds.

A superbly detailed record of Georgian London. To the west the extent is the 'Kensington Gravel Pits' or Notting Hill Gate as it is known today; to the east the plan has been extented past Limehouse to the new docks, the Isle of Dogs and the River Lea; to the north it is Islington, with its workhouse, and to the south are Kennington and Walworth.
This map was first published in 1787, but was constantly updated. A new feature of this edition is eastern section showing the East and West India Docks, added because of the commercial importance of these new docks.
Of interest are 'Wellings or Park Farm', 'Jews Harp' and 'Queen's Head and Artichoke', all cleared away later in the year to create Regent's Park, a feature added to the map for the 1815 edition.
