A PLAN OF THE CITY AND LIBERTIES OF LONDON 1666
A beautiful reproduction map of the City of London and its environs, designed to show the vast extent of the Great Fire of 1666.

Engraved for Noorthouck’s History of London 1772. Taken from “A New History of London, Including Westminster and Southwark, to which is added, A General Survey of the Whole; Describing The Public Buildings, Late Improvements, & c.
Includes “References to all the Churches both in the City and Suburbs” and “References to Remarkable Places”. YEAR: 1666 of London and its environs, extending to Amersham, Hertford, and Chelmsford in the north, and to Guildford, Reigate, and Tonbridge in the south.
