Fine early 19th Century plan of London by William Darton.

Folding map of Regency London. This map of London has been extended east by an extra sheet at the right side of the map, extending the map from Stepney as far east as Greenwich Marsh. The map illustrates proposals for the "Intended Markets" on the eastern side of Regent's Park (which became the Cumberland & Clarence Markets); the Intended Docks east of London Docks; the location of the soon-to-be-constructed Regent Street, running from Oxford Street to Piccadilly; and many other proposed improvements. It also has nice detail of Kensington Gardens.

The present example was apparently made to accompany Alexander's Stranger's Guide . . . , as the paste down on the slip case of the map provides this title.

Condition Description
Fine old color. Dissected and laid on linen, with original slipcase.
