Mapping the past...
Historic maps demonstrate a fascinating insight into the way the world was viewed and charted in bygone days. They have provided us with enduring accounts of the age-old universal thirst for knowledge and discovery; the evolution of societies; the alteration of the geographic landscape and the changing and creating of boundaries throughout the continents. Highly decorative and attractive additions to any room, maps were, and are still, invaluable tools for learning, exploration and play and, on the odd occasion, implied military intent! Read on...

Map of London
Engraved by Edward Mogg, 51 Charing Cross, published 1st January 1825. It is also inscribed in ink with the name Thos. Hinton and the date 1826. Dissected and laid on linen as originally issued,it is now in an ebonised frame with gilt slip and comes with its original vellum slipcase bearing the label "Map of London. London in Miniature, with the Surrounding Villages in which the Improvement both present and intended are actually produced (by Permission) from the surveys of the several proprietors. The whole laid down from the best Authorities and carefully corrected to the present time by Edward Mogg". Mogg was an English cartographer and engraver who flourished in the first half of the 19th century, notably engraving all his own maps in extraordinarily fine detail and to an exceptional level of fine workmanship. Publishing his maps from 51 Charing Cross, he made note of all the streets, significant buildings, docks and various parks as well as projected city renewal plans. He has also depicted the area of London consumed by fire in the Great Fire of 1666 with a red outline. A Mr. Thomas Hinton arrived in London in 1826 as a pianoforte maker/journeyman, having moved from Market Drayton, Shropshire. Perhaps this map enabled the newcomer to find his way around his new home city.
