John Strype's Survey of London

John Stow's Elizabethan classic, A Survey of London, was first published in 1598. However, London was dramatically transformed following the Great Fire of 1666 and so an updated, expanded version was published by John Strype. This online edition presents the text, street plans and illustrations of Strype's classic work.

John Strype's Survey of London was published by the Humanities Research Institute, University of Sheffield.
