London in the Olden Time, being a Topographical and Historical Memoir of London, Westminster, and Southwark, Accompanying a Pictorial Map of the City and its Suburbs, as they existed in the reign of Henry VIII., before the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
Compiled from Ancient documents and other authentic sources.

By William Newton.
Published in 1855

This is a truly fascinating map & book, providing the reader with a detailed and intimate peep into London near the end of the reign of the infamous Henry VIII, just before his dissolution of the monasteries.
Or, to be more precise, this is the view offered by the wonderfully detailed and supposedly accurate, 52 in. by 40 in. pictorial map, one of the two parts of this book.

The other part of the book is called, by the author William Newton, an "Accompanying Memoir" and it provides amazing detail of the origins, purpose and fates of hundreds of the buildings and locations which are illustrated on the map.
This map is more than just the overhead plan of the city's streets, which is what this term normally implies, and the clue to why is in the word "pictorial." As well as providing a "to scale" layout of the streets, William has drawn in the profiles of the buildings - in the locations where they stand. This means you not only get to understand the city's layout, but you can get a first hand impression of what it would have been like to walk the streets.

It really doesn't matter if you are a long time resident of London, or if you are a complete stranger, when you start to read the stories in this book, and see the places where it happened on the map, you are going to find yourself reliving the history of this colorful and great old city.
