You are bidding on a superb reproduction of an early coloured street map of London, published over a century and a half ago for the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge on a scale of 3 ¼ inches to a mile so that passengers in Hansom cabs could check that they were being taken by the shortest route. It shows street names, prominent buildings, docks, factories, canals and the earliest railways in minute detail. Beyond the built up area can be seen the orchards and market gardens of Chelsea and Southwark, the marshes of the Isle of Dogs and the outlying villages of Earls Court, Kentish Town and Bow. Each map has a history of London in 1843. Use it to set the scene as you explore the capital in early Victorian times or research the lives of your forebears.


The overall size of the map is approximately 15" x 25" (38cm x 65cm) and is supplied folded in a protective wallet.


Please make sure that you are aware that this item is a quality reproduction and not the original item before you bid. The original would be significantly more expensive. This reproduction provides you with the opportunity to obtain an exact copy of the original at a reasonable cost.



Terms and conditions




Payment is due within 5 days of the auction completing. If, however, you intend bidding on other auctions of mine that have not yet completed, you may delay payment until they have completed. Please let me know by email if you wish to do this.


I accept payments with PayPal or UK Sterling cheques, Postal Orders or Money Orders. If you are posting payment, I would appreciate it if you could advise me of that by email. In exceptional circumstances I can accept US$ or Euro cheques for purchases over £30.00, but there is an additional £6.50 service fee payable by the purchaser. This is the amount that my bank will charge me to negotiate an overseas cheque. Please contact me before making this type of payment.


Postage, packing and insurance


Unless indicated otherwise, all items are despatched by Royal Mail First Class Mail (U.K.) or Airmail (overseas). Postage and packing costs for this auction item are detailed below. Multiple purchases can usually be combined for a single purchase cost, but please check before assuming that is the case. It is not feasible, for example, to mail a rolled map and a folded map in a single shipment.


I usually post items within 1 -2 days of payment having been received using suitable packaging for the item. Please note that I accept no liability for non-delivery or damage of your purchase, unless you have taken out adequate insurance at the time of payment.


Insurance options available are as follows:-

U.K. only

Recorded Delivery – additional 66p postage. This does not insure the item, but requires a signature on receipt.

Special Delivery Next Day – amount dependant on weight. Typically, an additional £4.00 for small items, but please check before payment. This option provides insurance up to £500.


International Signed For – an additional £5.00, providing insurance up to £500.


Please note that all these costs are in addition to the postage and packing costs below.




I try to ensure that I describe and picture the items that I sell as accurately as possible. If, however, you purchase an item that is not as described, I am prepared to offer a refund, providing the item is returned to me in the same condition that it was received.
