Abstract:

At first sight, it seems scarcely possible that London & .c Actually Survey'd, and A large and Accurate Map of the City of London that preceded it by six yeas having been completed in December 1676, could have been the work of the same team of people. The map of the City seems the very model of merchant sobriety and scientific clarity, combining understated elegance with an almost total lack of decoration. London & .c Actually Survey'd dazzles with its flamboyant use of text as well as image which in places threaten to overwhelm the map. The difference between the two maps can only fully be understood in the context of the very different political situations prevailing at the times of their publications--Peter Barker.
