Rare first state of this decorative plan of London and environs, which was first published by Johannes De Ram in Amsterdam.

The map includes a 10 point key in the top left corner bearing the names of Southwark landmarks, and a 148 point key in the top-right bearing the names of locations on the other side of the Thames. The smaller title contained in a classical cartouche surmounted by the arms of London with dragon supporters.

The map includes the portraits of William & Mary, as well as a fine view of London, shortly after the fire.

Joannes de Ram's map celebrates William and Mary's ascent to the English throne after the Glorious Revolution, giving the country a Dutch monarch.

In later states of the map, the portraits and view are with a view of Westwood Park, Worcestershire.
