A clearly engraved and attractive map covering much of today's London area north of the Thames. The map extends from Staines to Edgware, Enfield and Tottenham. Jean, or John, Rocque is best known as one of the most active mapmakers of the period renowned for his estate plans, town plans and large-scale county maps, many produced on multiple sheets. He also produced a few smaller format atlases such as 'The English traveller ...' in which this map first appeared. The maps appeared in a number of editions, being republished after Rocque's death by his widow, Mary, and as late as 1769 in 'England Displayed ...'
