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

In this A-Z edition the 24 sheets have been supplemented by the 1747 index. An invaluable tool for historians, geographers and genealogists.
