A plan of London with all the new streets, lanes and roads to this present year by John Rocque topographer to his Majesty. John Rocque collaborated with the engravers George Virtue and John Pine to produce this map of London and the surrounding countryside, which he began surveying in 1738. The map was published in 24 sheets and remains the most accurate plan of London produced during the 18th century. Rocque was a land surveyor and cartographer born in France to a Huguenot family. They fled France for Geneva and then England. Rocque maintained close ties with the French Protestant community in London throughout his life.
