A handsome antique map of the City of London and its environs, designed to show the vast extent of the Great Fire of 1666. The excised detail leaves a good clear outline of the streets of the seventeenth-century City and the principal sites and buildings are given in keyed indices. The map is based on an earlier map by Wenceslaus Hollar and was originally produced for John Noorthouck's part-work "A New History of London" (London : 1772-1773). Engraved by R. Baldwin.
