A rare Interwar period pictorial city map of London.

Details

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.
