Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (2m+) and I can frame them. Contact me to discuss your specific needs. Learn more about how we source maps that you can't buy anywhere else.

This old, full colour and exceedingly rare map shows the ancient county of Middlesex (now mostly northern London) as it was in 1611. It was created by John Speed and engraved by Jodocus Hondius, and originally published in Speed's "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine".

The natural size for this map is 18x24 inches (45x60cm) but it looks even better when printed large. I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 37x50 inches (100x125cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.

Middlesex once contained both the City of London and City of Westminster - the two cities that overtime would become grow into the larger London urban area. This map has two lovely, detailed engravings of both Westminster and the City of London (with bits of Southwark over the river).

Many of the towns, villages and cities in the historic southeast England county of Middlesex are already visible in this map. Here are some of the places that you can see in this old county of Middlesex: Enfield, Waltham, High Barnet, East Barnet, Muswell Hill, Finsbury, Finchley, Crouch End, Highgate, Hampstead, Kentishtown, Tottenham Court (then Totten Court), Hammersmith, Kensington, Paddington, Brentford, Watford, Harrow, Uxbridge, Wembley, Brentford, Staines, Shepperton, Kingston, Hampton Court, Twickenham, Teddington, Richmond, Petersham, Mortlake, Barnes, Putney, Wandsworth, Clapham, Fulham... and really, just about every town north of the river in London! But of course, many of them are spelt in their Early Modern English forms.

Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your hometown! Feel free to message me if you want to confirm if a certain Middlesex or London town or village is on this map.

This would make a wonderful birthday or Christmas gift for someone from Middlesex or London or who has London in their heart.

You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear perspex in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.

Our museum-quality maps are made on thick and durable matte paper. Add a wonderful accent to your room and office with these vintage map prints that are sure to brighten any environment.
