John Stow (John Strype, editor),
Survey of the Cities of London and Westminster

Churchill et al, London, 1720, 2 volumes

John Stow first published his Survey of London in 1598. It has rarely been out of print since. In 1720 John Strype revised and edited the work, adding vast amounts of detail, and contained maps and plans of the city and immediate surrounding parishes, many of which have been attributed to Richard Blome.

This edition of Stow's survey has become the classic edition, and much sought after - mainly for the exquisite detail of the maps which enable us to get our first good glimpse into the twisting alleyways and streets of early eighteenth-century London. Over the coming months we will gradually add more of the maps from the 1720 edition of Stow.

Some of the maps are so large they will be broken down into sections. If this is the case, click within the key map for the detailed sections.
