The New Pictorial Map of London.
A rare Interwar period pictorial city map of London.
This fine circa 1930 map shows an area of central London stretching east-west from St. Paul’s Cathedral to Hyde Park, and north-south from Regent’s Park to St. George’s Circle. It is a pictorial map, and the illustrations give life to the city with creativity and wit. Every inch of the map offers something new and fresh, painting a picture of the lively character of London between the two world wars.
The mapmaker, Geographia, Ltd., apparently published two slightly different editions of this map within a few years of each other. The edition offered here appears to be the rarer of the two, and is seldom seen on the antiquarian map market.
Some wear, discoloration along fold lines, some general discoloration. Very good.
