The model in the listing images is holding the 24x18 inch (60x45cm) version of this map.
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 acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.

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.
