Notes

A map of the parish of Saint Pancras, with a bucolic title cartouche surrounded by trees and ponds. Bodies of water are marked in blue, public buildings in pink, offices and workshops in yellow, and streets in orange. Houses are marked with their numbers, and the land is divided into holdings and marked with their names and acreage.

The label on the slipcase identifies it as a copy of John Tompson’s survey of the parish, commissioned by the select vestry in 1796. It was lithographed by Robert J. Cook and Hammond, and first published in 1804. This edition was reissued in 1906.

Rare: No institutional copies of this edition known; copies of the earlier edition at the BL
