Map of London 1746

This is the famous Rocque's Map of London, first published in 1746. The plan covers the cities of London, Westminster, and borough of Southwark. It was surveyed by John Rocque and engraved by John Pine on twenty-four separate sheets. It took nearly ten years to survey, engrave and publish the map. The Rocque's map of London has been described as 'a magnificent example of cartography, and one of the greatest and most handsome plans of any city'.
The map was financed through a system that resemble today's 'crowdfunding', people subscribing to obtain a copy, paying one guinea as a deposit and two guineas when the map was received.

Our reproductions are handmade in our Los Angeles studio, using only high resolution files printed on archival cotton weave canvas. They are twice varnished with a Polymer gloss that ensures UV protection and enhances the colors. Decorative wood is assembled on the top and bottom, with two eye-hooks mounted on the top piece. We also supply a jute rope that can be attached between the two eye-hooks to give the map that old pull down map feel.

During the restoration process, we pay great attention to matching the colors to the original maps. Please note that your computer screen might display slightly different colors than our professionally calibrated monitors.
