This is the fourth edition of Braun & Hogenberg's map view of London. The title in cartouche at the foot of the plate replaces the figures of merchants from the earlier editions. Tudor arms feature at top right, with the city arms at top left and descriptive notes at bottom right and bottom left. Published in Hatton's 'A New View of London; or, an Ample Account of that City', the map is similar in detail to the 'Copperplate Map', the earliest printed map of London of which no complete copy survives. Merchant ships, cranes, mills, bull- and bear-baiting pits, the large tennis courts at Westminster and the stags in St. James's are examples of London's business and leisure activities. Walled gardens, elegant churches and livery halls testify to the high quality of life enjoyed by its citizens.
