John Cary was possibly the most productive English map-maker and publisher of the 18th century. His works were reissued many times, but unlike many of his contemporaries he aimed to update each edition by showing new developments.
This is the third edition of a map first published in 1787. The developments in Somers Town are shown; the Lambeth and London roads are named. The numerous parks and gardens across the city are coloured green. The map is divided into squares, numbered for reference.
