LONDON IN THE REIGN OF QUEEN ELIZABETH, 1560
CIVITAS LONDINVM Ano Dni CIRCITER MDLX
A very decorative, panoramic, retrospective map published by Cassells circa 1880 after Ralph Agas, from Old and New London Illustrated.
The Agas map is the earliest surviving map of London. The map is attributed to Ralph Agas, but it is unlikely that Agas was in fact the maker. Only 3 examples are known to have survived.
Whiled "dated" 1560, internal evidence (Old St. Paul's has lost its spire, the Royal Exchange is built, Northumberland House is not yet built) places the map between about 1570 and 1605.
