This is a map of London immediately after the great fire of 1666. The map was first published by the Merian Heirs of Frankfurt in 1677, appearing in the anthology "Theatri Europei". The title appears in a scroll along the top, flanked by royal and city arms. Notes on shading and an inset plan of Robert Hooke’s designs for rebuilding the city appear in another scroll at the foot of the plate. Hooke's plan is given with its own key and reference table.
