A detailed map of London and environs that extends from Hertford in the north to Reigate in the south, and from Chatham in the east to Great Marlow in the west. The counties are delineated by attractive original colour and a circle with a twelve mile radius from Central London is also given. There is no circle with a four-mile radius, as cited in Hyde. The key and mileage scale appear at the bottom of the map along with the postal district abbreviations, and the whole appears within a simple decorative piano-key surround. Laid on archival tissue to strengthen old folds.
