This is the fifth edition of a map originally published in 1771 by John Bowles. His name has been replaced by the imprint of Robert Wilkinson, the reissuer. This map highlights the London Wall in red, and colours the city in pink. It uses arrows to show the direction of water-flow in the Thames. 

There are some additions to the map near the Foundling Hospital.
