This folding map is laid on to high-quality cloth and beautifully presented in an antique marbled slip case. They are individually handmade in Buckinghamshire in the family-run workshop of craftsman Phillip Burrough. They are made using pigment ink, archival paper and hand-laid on to cloth. Even the glue used is made from an old recipe. Mogg's Strangers Guide to London was first printed in 1837, the year in which Soane died. It was originally made by the publisher and engraver Edward Mogg who specialised in maps and guides of London and its surroundings. Folding maps came into being in the mid-18th century when turnpike roads became extensive and good enough to make long-distance travel easier. These maps offer a fascinating insight into London's development over Soane'?s working life.
