A delightful map of Elizabethan London as Shakespeare would have known it, drafted by the Bavarian cartographer Frans Hogenberg.

It depicts a fantastic view of London with the River Thames stretching across the city with the infamous Tower of London, a bear baiting arena, the Charterhouse monastery, the monument at Chary-ncros and Old St Paul's Cathedral. In the more rural areas north of Holburn, local wildlife can be seen. A fascinating insight into the geography of the capital and lives of its inhabitants.

The map was originally part of a larger collection of maps, contained in an atlas edited by the Swiss cleric George Braun.
