[BOWEN, Thomas, 1733?-1790] : BREADSTREET WARD AND CORDWAINERS WARD WITH THEIR DIVISIONS INTO PARISHES ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.
[London : R. Baldwin], 1772. An attractive antique map of the adjacent wards of Bread Street and Cordwainer in the heart of the City of London, taking in the south side of Cheapside (with Bow Church), Watling Street, the sites of the present Cannon Street and Queen Victoria Street, as well as Friday Street, Bread Street, Bow Lane, Queen Street and Budge Row. The map is decorated with a rococo cartouche and elevations of the churches of St. Matthew Friday Street and St. Mildred Bread Street. 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.
