A detailed Victorian map of the environs of London

FROGGETT, John Walter.

From the Ordnance Survey of the Country Thirty Miles Round London.
London: G.F. Cruchley, c.1846. Fine original hand colour. Dissected and laid on linen as issued, total 1115 x 1390mm.

A large and detailed map of the environs of London, first published by Froggett in 1831, but here updated by Cruchley with the railways and with Froggett's name removed. The map extends to Maidenhead in the west, clockwise to Tring, Hertford, Chelmsford, Chatham, Maidstone, Tonbridge, Reigate, Dorking, Guildford and Bagshot, on a scale of 1 inch to the mile. Hills and ridges are hatchured and parks highlighted with colour.
We have dated the map to c.1846 by the presence of the 'Croydon and Epsom Railway'; the company was formed in 1844 but by the time the line opened in 1846 it had merged with others to form the 'London, Brighton and South Coast Railway'.

HOWGEGO: 333, after last state listed. HYDE D&H 333, before first state listed.
