Mapping London at The Gallery @ Oxo

London-based dealer Daniel Crouch Rare Books hosts a pop-up selling exhibition at the OXO Gallery as part of the programme for the Totally Thames festival.

The exhibition will feature some of the most important large-scale printed surveys of London ever produced – including ground-breaking maps of Georgian London, an exceptionally rare trade card map of Islington and a contemporary map of the bunkers and tunnels of subterranean London.

As well as featuring Braun and Hogenberg’s first ever printed map of London from 1574, the exhibition will also feature an extremely rare map of London by Thomas Porter, published in the 1650s during the reign of Oliver Cromwell, which highlights the grand houses and wharves along the Thames and even shows ferrymen, barges and sailing vessels.
