John Rocque Map of Isleworth, Richmond, Hounslow
The country near 10 miles round London circa 1746. Part of including Hounslow, Isleworth, Sheen, Richmond, Petersham and Twickenham. John Roque (1709 - 1762) was a Hugenot refugee and came to England in 1709 with his parents fleeing persecution in France. He was an engraver and mapmaker and published his map of the country near 10 miles round London in 1746. The map we reproduce here is part of that map.
The Folding Map Company produce reproductions of the rarer maps, all dissected and hand laid onto 100% natural cotton cloth. All of them are supplied in handmade slipcases covered in marbled paper taken from our collection of original papers dating back to circa 1700.
