Handmade to order
This large map, by W. Faden in 1790, is one of the greatest historic maps of London. Unusual for maps of its time, this one also includes all of the suburbs of London up to 25 miles around.
Over 200 years ago London looked very different indeed. In fact, London is hardly there at all! There's the City of Westminster and the City of London... and a bunch of villages dotted around them. The next 100 years would see London (and the British Empire) dramatically expand.
There's an incredible amount of detail in this map - and at 18x24 inches, you'll be able to read all of the smallest village names!
For larger versions of this map up to 3m (10ft) wide, please see this listing.
This is one of the greatest maps of London and its environs ever printed. Everything from Reigate and Godstone in the south, to Leatherhead in the southwest, to Enfield in the north and Billericay in the west. And just about all of the London boroughs and villages are here too, from Peckham to Bethnal Green to Deptford to Hackney.
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 am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.

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.
