Fine detailed view of London, which identifies the Agas map of 1560 as its source.
A fantastic large decorative image, issued by Weller for the Weekly Dispatch Atlas.
The Agas map is the earliest surviving map of London. The map is attributed to Ralph Agas, but it is unlikely that Agas was in fact the maker. Only 3 examples are known to have survived. The original was 72 x 29 inches.
Whiled "dated" 1560, internal evidence (Old St. Paul's has lost its spire, the Royal Exchange is built, Northumberland House is not yet built) places the map between about 1570 and 1605.
