Civitas Londinum A.D. MDLX.
London in the Reign of Queen Elizabeth.
Dissected into 16 sections and laid on linen. A fascinating plan of Elizabethan London extending from Westminster to the Tower of London. The plan features two coats of arms (one of the City of London, the other the royal coat of arms), plus two keys to principal buildings and landmarks. There is a note by John Dower on the map which states “This map is a facsimile (reduced) of the old one by Ralph Agas in the year 1560.” Published by Cassell, Petter & Galpin in Edward Weller’s Weekly Dispatch Atlas.
