The title of this pocket map of London, Westminster and Southwark appears in cartouche at bottom centre alongside the city arms. A compass star is depicted in the river with a publisher's imprint (in scroll) at bottom left. An engraver by trade, Thomas Bowles acquired the stock of cartographers Morden & Lea at the beginning of the 18th Century, starting a successful publishing house, the output of which was almost entirely derivative. Bowles' brother, John, was also a print seller and publisher. Their businesses were separate, but the two often worked together.
