ANTIQUE PRINT: THE WARDS OF COLEMAN STREET, AND BASSISHAW, TAKEN FROM THE LATEST SURVEY, WITH CORRECTIONS AND AMENDMENTS.

[BOWEN, Thomas, 1733?-1790] : THE WARDS OF COLEMAN STREET, AND BASSISHAW, TAKEN FROM THE LATEST SURVEY, WITH CORRECTIONS AND AMENDMENTS.

[London : R. Baldwin], 1772. An attractive eighteenth-century map of the adjacent wards of Coleman Street and Bassishaw in the centre of the City of London. The map runs northwards from Lothbury and Old Jewry to London Wall and what were then the Lower Walks of Moorfields – now Finsbury Circus. The modern Moorgate Street was not then built, but the route it takes parallel to Coleman Street is covered and the Gate itself is shown. The map (here in its later state, with the compass rose correctly orientated, etc.) is decorated with views of the churches of St. Michael Bassishaw and St. Stephen Coleman Street. 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.
Copper line engraving on paper. Engraved surface 229 x 169mm (approx. 9” x 6-5/8”). A few faint marks, but overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map. Adams 51/007. Hyde (Ward Maps) 59/2.
