This untitled map of Stuart London features royal arms at top left, city arms at top right, with a scale bar and dividers shown beneath a female figure with a globe at lower left. A key to Southwark's churches is provided at lower right. This map is derivative of Wenceslaus Hollar posthumously published plan of 1685 and features vignettes of prominent buildings along the top, together with portraits of King William and Queen Mary. 

At the foot of the plate, views of the seven city gates and the Tower of London accompany equestrian statues of Charles I and Charles II.
