The A to Z of Georgian London


In 1738 John Rocque, an obscure French surveyor, was selected to undertake a fresh survey of London, the first for 56 years. It took nine years to complete, and was magnificently drawn by the King's engraver, measuring six and a half feet by thirteen.

The map became the standard map od the period. In this edition the 24 sheets have been supplemented by the 1747 index, and there is an essay by Ralph Hyde on the making of the map. This is an invaluable tool for historians, geographers and genealogists.
