A finely engraved map of Middlesex, here accompanied by a page of descriptive text. London's extent shows development in the Marylebone and Knightsbridge areas, but all to the north and west were hamlets, villages and small towns in rural surroundings. Cary's maps are of a very high technical standard, being finely engraved, but are also designed to be functional. The maps strive for accuracy rather than decoration, which emphasises the detail, the accomplished engraving and the clarity of presentation.
