The title of this map of the City of London appears along the top, with tables of references at top left and right, a compass rose depicted along the river course. St Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London, the Roman wall and ships sailing along the Thames are all shown pictorially.

The map's publisher, John Overton, had acquired Peter Stent's stock in the mid-17th Century. This stock included many maps by leading Tudor cartographers. His son Henry succeeded him in 1703 and continued the family's publishing business.
