The Environs of London by G.W. Colton in 1886 shows how large London had become at the peak of the British Empire. Most of what we now consider the inner city boroughs are in place - but the suburbs are still fields and forests.

It is also clear from this map how south London was mostly a collection of smaller towns and villages, while the London north of the river was already very densely populated indeed.

The map extends to Kingston, Crystal Palace and Bromley in the south, Ealing and Richmond in the west, Finchley, Southgate and Chigwell in the north, and East Ham and Abbey Wood in the east.

If you're after a large version of this map (up to a few meters wide), please get in touch. I can frame it for you, too.

All of my maps are well packaged and sent in a rugged tube if unframed, or surrounded by foam if framed.

I try to send out all maps within 1 or 2 days of receiving your order, though some products (like face masks or mugs) can take longer to make.

If you select the free worldwide shipping option, you can usually expect to receive your map around 10 days after you order. It may be faster or slower, depending on the impact of coronavirus in your country.

If you select Express Delivery at checkout your order will be sent by courier (Fedex, DHL, UPS, Parcelforce) and will usually arrive in 2-3 days.

Customers in the US, Australia and Canada: Your map will be sent from a printer or framer in your country, which means you'll get your map sooner, you won't pay import duties, and we'll put less CO2 into the atmosphere. I have worked with some great printers and framers around the world for years - so don't worry, your map will still look amazing!

My maps are extremely high quality reproductions of original maps.

I source original, extremely rare maps from libraries, auction houses and private collections around the world, restore them at my London workshop, and then use specialist giclée inks and printers to create beautiful maps that look even better than the original.

My maps are printed on thick matte (not glossy) paper that feels high quality. In technical terms the paper weight/thickness is 10mil/190gsm. It's perfect for framing.

Please contact me if you're looking for a print on canvas or cotton rag.
