[Title-Page] ... The Cities Of London And Westminster ... : J.Rocque

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A good example of the titlepage to Jean Rocque's map of London and its environs that was printed on 16 sheets. This was one of the most renowned and fascinating large-scale maps of the area around London and Westminster, extending almost ten miles at either side and six north and south, thus encompassing all of today's Greater London. The titlepage is printed in red and black, with a copperplate engraved image of London personified - the dome of St Paul's and Westminster are visible in the background. With a little light staining, this is nevertheless a good example of the Rocque titlepage. Printed by W.Edwards at the Globe.
