    Product description
    For the purpose of government the City of London is divided into wards and has been so since the twelfth century. In written surveys of London, from John Stow’s in the sixteenth century onwards, the contemporary City was described ward by ward. In due course such book were illustrated, and ward maps were the natural and necessary consequence. This book explains how the Ward Maps of the City of London came to be made, their changing styles, the people who made them, and the development of the maps from attractive book illustrations to important tools of government. The introduction contains 16 black and white illustrations. The catalogue section of this publication lists and describes the 110 distinct maps, printed and manuscript, with 25 black and white plates.
