Scope and Content

Printed facsimile of a copy made by George Vertue of an original map by Ralph Aggas (Tregellis suggests a date of either 1560 or 1588) showing the Tower of London. This copy was of an original supposedly once in the possession of Sir Hans Sloane. The only other known originals, according to Tregellis were at the Guildhall Library in London and the Bodleian Library in Oxford.

This is an unusual representation of the Tower of London but is close in date to the Hayward and Gascoigne plan of 1597.
