Fine pictorial map of London, intended for use by children. The map covers the area from Hyde Park to London Tower and St. Pancras Station to Victoria Station. The densely filled map displays parks, buildings, named streets and several quotations from the likes of Noyes, Kipling and Cowher. True to its intended audience, the map is surrounded by numerous small vignettes depicting nursery rhymes including Humpty Dumpty, Jack & Jill and Little Miss Muffett, as well as coats of arms.
The map indicates that all of the author's royalties from the sale of the map would go a Children's Hospital.
