COLE, G. & ROPER, John : LIVERPOOL.

COLE, G. & ROPER, John : LIVERPOOL.

London : Vernor, Hood & Sharpe, 1807. A neatly worked and detailed town plan of Liverpool as it stood at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Engraved by John Roper (fl.1792-1810) from a draught by G. Cole – probably the surveyor George Cole of Soho. The map is decorated with the city’s coat of arms and a vignette view of St. Paul’s Church – the latter separately engraved by John Smith from an original study by George Sidney Shepherd (1784-1862). Originally produced to accompany the part-work “Beauties of England and Wales” (London : 1801-1818).
Copper line engraving on paper. Engraved surface 235 x 182mm (approx. 9-1/4” x 7-1/4”). Faint original fold, but overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map.
