乔治王时代的伦敦

 

作者:约翰·罗克

作品标题:巨幅伦敦地图

出版信息:伦敦,1746

物品描述:铜版刻印24张纸

尺寸:2100 x 4000 毫米

售价:110,000英镑

 

共印刷于二十四张纸,总体尺寸约两米乘四米的这张巨幅伦敦地图,展示了罗克对伦敦市、西敏市和南华克城区的首次大规模测绘。

 

这份平面图无论在规模还是细节上都令人叹为观止,其范围西至海德公园、东至莱姆豪斯、北至新河岬、南至沃尔沃斯。

 

此例是法国胡格诺派教徒约翰·罗克的测绘结果,他在1730年代与家人一起移居伦敦,为绅士贵族的土地做测量工作,并且绘制了肯辛顿花园、邱园和汉普顿宫的平面图。 1737年,他将自己的测绘技能应用到一项更大的任务上,那就是测量伦敦的所有建成区。 这项任务始于3月,以比例尺26英寸比1英里为标准,花费了9年完成了地图的绘制。

 

这幅平面图上绘制了许多细节,真实的还原了十八世纪时伦敦的生活。图上还绘有一些建筑物的内部细节,例如圣保罗大教堂,人口稀少的地区绘有花园。

JOHN ROCQUE'S MAGNIFICENT MAP OF EARLY GEORGIAN LONDON

 

Author : ROCQUE, John

Title: A Plan of the Cities of London and Westminster and Borough of Southwark

Publication: London, John Pine and John Tinney, 1746.

Description: Engraved plan on 24 sheets.

Dimension: 2100 by 4000mm. (82.75 by 157.5 inches).

Price£110,000.00

 

Printed on twenty-four sheets of paper and measuring some two by four metres, Rocque’s seventeen forty-six map is the first large-scale survey of the cities of London, Westminster, and Southwark.

 

Incredible in both scale and detail, the plan stretches west to east from Hyde Park to Limehouse and north to south from New River Head to Walworth.

 

The map was surveyed by John Rocque, a French Huguenot, who emigrated along with the rest of his family to London in the seventeen thirties, where he began to ply his trade as a surveyor of gentleman’s estates, and with plans of Kensington Gardens, Kew, and Hampton Court. However, in seventeen thirty-seven he applied his surveying skills to a much greater task, that of surveying the entire built-up area of London. Begun in March, upon a scale of twenty-six inches to one statute mile, the map would take nine years to produce.
