Handmade to order
Many of the towns, villages and cities in Surrey are already visible in this map. Curiously, there are engravings of two palaces that no longer exist: Richmond Palace in the top left and Nonsuch Palace in the top right. Both were Tudor palaces back in the 1500s.
Brixton, Clapham, Dulwich and Camberwell are clearly visible in the top right - back then they were parts of Surrey, until they became part of the London borough of Lambeth in 1889.
Some of the towns, villages and places clearly visible in this old map include: Guildford, Kingston, Cobham, Godalming, Oxted, Croydon, Brentford, Mortlake, Richmond, Sutton, Morden, and many others. 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!
A number of coats of arms adorn the left and right side of the map for the Dukes and Earls of Surrey.
This would make a wonderful gift for someone from Surrey or who has Surrey 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.

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.
