John Andrews (fl.1766-1798) and Andrew Dury (fl.1754-1777) issued proposals for a new survey of the country fifty-five miles round London early in 1772. The map, eventually expanded to sixty-five miles round London, was published in twenty sheets between 1774 and 1777, with subsets of individual sheets recombined to make up maps of smaller areas, e.g. maps of twenty-five miles round Windsor, round Richmond, or round London. The present map, comprising the four central sheets of the original twenty, is the twenty-five miles round London version. The area covered takes in Hertford to the north, Rochford to the east, East Grinstead to the south, and Godalming, Windsor and Beaconsfield to the west. Scale of 7/8th of an inch to the mile.
