Untitled [Plate B4-Chelsea Water Works & The Willow Walk-Pimlico : R.Horwood

This attractive sheet contains almost as much landscape garden design as cartographic detail, focused as it is on the Neat Houses of the Thames just east of the Chelsea Creek. The map also includes Tothill Fields and the Willow Walk - open countryside at this time. Horwood's map is described by Howgego as, "The Largest And Most Important Map Of London From The Eighteenth Century." The survey took no less than nine years to complete with every house shown (with its number, if it had one) along with alleyways, courts and even vacant plots. Among the subscribers were the directors of the Phoenix Assurance Office to whose trustees and directors Horwood dedicated the map. At no less than 26 inches to the mile it would have repaid the insurers' investment, affording detailed knowledge of London's potential fire risks. Slight evidence of old folds, otherwise in good, clean condition.
