ANTIQUE MAP: CHEAPE WARD WITH ITS DIVISION INTO PARISHES, TAKEN FROM THE LAST SURVEY, WITH CORRECTIONS AND ADDITIONS.

[BLOME, Richard, 1635-1705] : CHEAPE WARD WITH ITS DIVISION INTO PARISHES, TAKEN FROM THE LAST SURVEY, WITH CORRECTIONS AND ADDITIONS.

[London : for W. Innys & J. Richardson, J. & P. Knapton & others], 1754. A fine antique map of Cheap Ward in the City of London. Centred on Cheapside and the Poultry the map extends northwards to the Guildhall and includes the churches of St. Lawrence Jewry, St. Mildred Poultry and St. Mary le Bow (Bow Church), as well as Grocers’ Hall, King Street, Queen Street, Bucklersbury, Ironmonger Lane and Bow Lane. A numbered index adds the names of a dozen smaller courts and alleys. The map, decorated with a baroque cartouche, was originally engraved for Richard Blome in the 1690s and first published in 1720. The present example, showing some revision, was prepared to accompany the part-work edition of John Stow’s “A Survey of the Cities of London and Westminster” (London : 1754-1756).
Copper line engraving on paper. Engraved surface 302 x 347mm (approx. 11-7/8” x 13-5/8”). Faint old vertical folds, some very faint tanning and offsetting, but overall in very good state. A guaranteed genuine antique map. Adams 37/049. Hyde (Ward Maps) 52/2 – Plate 11.
