Amidst growing population and urban redevelopment, eighteenth-century cartographers turned to maps to structure the changing size and shape of cities. For example, topographical maps provided readers with details that visually enclosed and contained the increasing sprawl of a rebuilding London. Textual surveys, by such cartographers as William Stow, used narrative prose to expand the topographical view in order to show “where every Street, Lane, Court, Alley…or any other Place…is situated.” These maps and surveys flooded the market in the 1740s, the decade which also witnessed the intensifying growth of the novel.
