A small but detailed steelplate engraving of Regent's Park, Central London at a time of great development. The New Road from Paddington to Islington is shown along with the canal which had been opened in 1816. Nash's terraces are shown with the layout of the park. The alternative plans, had they been carried out, would have led to a far greater density of building. The semi-circular enclosure at the north side of the park is marked "Menagerie &c of the Zoological Society". An interesting and attractive plan, trimmed and repaired at lower margin.
