Additional Information

A Plan of the Cities of London and Westminster, and Borough of Southwark; with the contiguous buildings is the full title of John Rocque’s Map of London. Surveyed by John Rocque and engraved by John Pine, it has been described as the most detailed and accurate map of 18th-century London ever produced. Consisting of 24 sheets of detailed cartography, it mapped Georgian London to a scale or 26 inches to a mile. Pine engraved the map on copper – after drawing, each paper sheet was placed over a waxed copper plate and the lines were traced manually to produce the engraving. The plate was inked and damp paper pressed on to it to pick up the ink.

The largest print size we are able to offer for this artwork is 60 x 45 cm.

John Pine, (1690— 1756), was an English engraver and friend of William Hogarth. He owned a printshop in London, where he published books which he illustrated himself. The Friar in William Hogarth’s O the Roast Beef of Old England ('The Gate of Calais'), 1748 is said to be modelled on him.

John Rocque (1704 – 1762) was a French-born British surveyor and cartographer, famous for his detailed map of London published in 1746. As well as being a surveyor and mapmaker, Rocque was also an engraver and map-seller – he had a shop in Piccadilly, where members of the public were also able to view his map of London in progress and suggest revisions.
