ANTIQUE MAP: ALDGATE WARD WITH ITS DIVISIONS INTO PRECINCTS AND PARISHES, ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

[BOWEN, Thomas, 1733?-1790] : ALDGATE WARD WITH ITS DIVISIONS INTO PRECINCTS AND PARISHES, ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

[London : R. Baldwin], 1772. A pleasant antique map of the eastern end of the City of London, showing Bevis Marks, St. Mary Axe, Leadenhall Street, the far end of Fenchurch Street, Aldgate, Crutched Friars, Jewry Street, etc. The map is decorated with the arms of the then alderman, John Shakespear, a delicate rococo cartouche and views of the churches of St. James, Dukes Place, and St. Katherine Coleman. Originally produced for the “London Magazine” in 1766, the present (slightly revised) version of the map was utilised in John Noorthouck’s part-work “A New History of London including Westminster and Southwark” (London : 1772-1773). Other maps in this series were engraved by Thomas Bowen and this would also appear to be his work.
Copper line engraving on paper. Engraved surface 178 x 235mm (approx. 7” x 9-1/4”). A minor marks to outer blank margins and some faint ofsetting, but otherwise in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map. Adams 51/006. Hyde (Ward Maps) 13/2.
