London in 1840 on a cloth-backed reproduction (medium size) from the Old Folding Maps of an original drawn by R Creighton, engraved by J. and C. Walker and published on 1st January of that year. The map, with its original title of “A Plan of London and its Environs”, covers a slightly larger area of the capital than found on most other mid-19th century reproductions, extending eastwards from the whole of the Regent’s Park, most of Hyde Park and Chelsea to the eastern end of the Regent’s Canal and Surrey Docks. North/south coverage extends from Camden Town and Islington to just beyond The Oval.

This reproduction was taken from what used to be called a “cloth-dissected” map, made when the map itself was cut into sections and each section then individually pasted onto an overall cloth backing for the whole map. In this version the whole map is backed onto cloth in one piece but the gaps between the sections have been reproduced in the printing to preserve the style and the feeling of the original. Each individual cloth-backed map is sold folded in a colourful case covered with a unique design marbled paper – no two cases are identical.
