Map of Elizabethan London, 1572 : Braun and Hogenberg's Sheet map

Description

The earliest entirely extant city plan of London, this map of the Elizabethan capital was first printed in 1572.

As well as being a beautiful decorative piece, it also offers an invaluable insight into the geography of London and lives of its inhabitants.

It features the infamous Tower of London, a bear baiting arena, the Charterhouse monastry, the monument at "Chary-ncros", Old St Paul's Cathedral and even local wildlife in the grassy fields north of Holborn.
