London : Society For The Diffusion Of Useful Knowledge

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive and detailed plan of London engraved by B.R.Davies for the Society For The Diffusion Of Useful Knowledge - SDUK. The Society began in 1826, the concept of a Scottish lawyer Henry Brougham, conscious of the need for affordable publications to satisfy and educate an expanding British population of increasing wealth, literacy and travel expectations. Over 200 maps and plans were produced, first sold as part works on subscription and from 1844 in a variety of bound atlases. This plan is dated 1856 and is unlisted in Howgego's standard listing of early London maps. battersea Park is marked and the intended Lambeth Bridge is faintly shown. The map extends from Earls Court and Primrose Hill to to Bow and Greenwich taking in much of the City's developing environs - a fascinating and popular map. A fresh example with good original colour.
