ANTIQUE MAP: NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE & GATESHEAD.

COLE, G. & ROPER, John : NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE & GATESHEAD.

London : Vernor, Hood & Sharpe, 1808. A neatly worked and detailed town plan of Newcastle 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 town’s coat of arms and a view of St. Nicholas – the latter separately engraved by John Roffe (1769-1850) from an original study by James Robert Thompson (fl.1806-1848). Originally produced to accompany the part-work “Beauties of England and Wales” (London : 1801-1818).
Copper line engraving on paper. Engraved surface 182 x 234mm (approx. 7-1/4” x 9-1/4”). Two faint surface creases, but otherwise in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique print.
