ANTIQUE MAP: BISHOPSGATE-STREET WARD. TAKEN FROM THE LAST SURVEY, AND CORRECTED.

[BLOME, Richard, 1635-1705] : BISHOPSGATE-STREET WARD. TAKEN FROM THE LAST SURVEY, AND CORRECTED.

[London : for A. Churchill, J. Knapton & others, 1720]. An attractive antique map of the Bishopsgate area of the City of London – the whole length of Bishopsgate from north to south, extending down into Gracechurch Street, with the smaller streets to either side. The map is decorated with a baroque cartouche, and the names of seventy-one smaller side-streets and alleys are given in a keyed index. Originally produced by Richard Blome in the late seventeenth century, the map remained unpublished until the present version (with his name erased) appeared with the 1720 edition of John Stow’s “Survey of London”.

ANTIQUE MAP: BISHOPS GATE WARD WITHIN AND WITHOUT ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

[BOWEN, Thomas, 1733?-1790] : BISHOPS GATE WARD WITHIN AND WITHOUT ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

[London : R. Baldwin], 1772. An attractive antique map of the Bishopsgate area of the City of London – the whole length of Bishopsgate, extending down into Gracechurch Street, with the smaller streets to either side. The map is decorated with a rococo title-piece and views of the local churches of St. Ethelburga and Great St. Helen. Originally produced for the “London Magazine” in 1767, 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.
