    A plan of the cities of London and Westminster, and borough of Southwark,

    The idea to do a new survey had come from the engraver George Vertue, but he and John Rocque could not come to an agreement. Rocque, began the painstaking project in 1737 in partnership with another engraver, John Pine, to survey the central area of London and Westminster, which eventually took 9 years. The completed map measured 6 ½ feet by 13 and comprised of 24 separate sheets. It encompassed an area of 10,000 acres and drawn at a scale of 200ft to the 1inch.

    Life in London by Pierce Egan

    The names are Tom and Jerry are these days synonymous with the cat and mouse cartoons of 1940s, but to a nineteenth century ear, whether Regency or Victorian, they belonged to the rakish Corinthian Tom and his cousin from the country Jerry Hawthorne who, along with their friend Bob Logic, roamed the streets of the capital in search of a good time in Egan’s boisterous comic serial Life in London.

    Described as ‘a faithful Portraiture of High & Low Life’ from the West End to the East End, Pierce Egan’s comical monthly was one of the popular sensations of its day. The central characters, Tom, Jerry and Logic were well-heeled young men about town, keen to see ‘a bit of life’ in the poorer districts of London. Their escapades and misadventures were largely autobiographical, being drawn from the lives of Egan himself and his illustrators, George and Robert Cruikshank and Isaac Richard.

    One of the key achievements of Egan’s Life in London was using contemporary slang as the basis of its style. As a result of the success of Life in London, the names Tom and Jerry became proverbial for young men causing disorder.

    Brunswick lace panel

    Handloom weaving was brought to the Irvine Valley, Scotland, in the late 16th century. The craft of lace making was later introduced to the area in 1876 followed shortly by the invention of the power loom in 1877. Lace and Madras weaving continued to flourish there until the late 1970s. The struggle for companies to compete with the distribution of emerging European and Asian economies had a profound effect on the Scottish textile industry. Fortunately these patterned lace panels continue to be woven in Scotland on some of the last remaining Nottingham lace looms in the world. The manufacturing process is extremely labour intensive; the looms run at a very slow, controlled pace so as to give a high level of quality control. LASSCO has been working closely with the weavers to develop a unique collection of lace panels. These patterns were selected for use in, and especially woven for, the Saloon at Brunswick House, the 1758 Georgian Vauxhall home of the Duke of Brunswick that is now the LASSCO 'flagship'. With authentic Gainsborough patterns appropriately reminiscent of the Vauxhall Gardens style, the lower edges are worked in embroidered scallops. Currently two in stock.
