This pocket map of London was published as the frontispiece to Volume I of "A Survey of the cities of London and Westminster, Borough of Southwark", by Robert Seymour. No new survey of the London area had been made between William Morgan's in 1682 and John Rocque's of 1746. The marked similarity of this map to the William Roades' 1731 pocket map is testimony to this.

The title of this drawing appears in a square tablet at top left, with prominent buildings shown pictorially.
