To the left and right of the title is an explanation in French of London and its principal buildings. Below the plan are two views, one of Monument — the great doric column designed by Wren and Hooke to commemorate the Great Fire; and the other, St Mary-le-Bow church; another Wren masterpiece that was completed in 1680 and considered at the time the second most important church in London, after St Paul’s. Also below the plan is a list of the most important streets, hospitals, churches, public buildings, and gateways. The plan bears grid lines for easy reference.
Guillaume Danet was the son-in-law of the well-known cartographer Nicholas de Fer. However, Danet was far less prolific a mapmaker, and consequently his maps are rare.
Scale: 5 inches to 1 statute mile.
