Handmade to order
This charming map, known as Mogg's pocket or case map of London, was created in 1820. It shows 24 miles around London.
While not as detailed as W. Faden's map of London and its surrounds, it's still a lovely map of how London used to look 200 years ago. The circular view of our capital city is rather unique, too.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x12 inches (31x31cm), 14x14 inches (36x36cm) and 16x16in (40x40cm), but it looks even better when printed large.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 18x18 inches (46x46cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 16x16 inch (41x31cm) version of this map.
The map extends to Reigate and Dorking in the south, Windsor in the west, Hatfield and Hertford in the north, and Thurrock and Gravesend in the east. The map also shows the county divisions in London before the creation of its modern boroughs. Middlesex in the northwest, Essex in the northeast, Surrey in the southwest and Kent in the southeast.
This would make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, work leaving or housewarming gift for someone from London or someone who has a keen interest in the history of London.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
