ANTIQUE MAP: QUEEN HITH WARD AND VINTRY WARD. WITH THEIR DIVISION INTO PARISHES, TAKEN FROM THE LAST SURVEYS.

[BLOME, Richard, 1635-1705] : QUEEN HITH WARD AND VINTRY WARD. WITH THEIR DIVISION INTO PARISHES, TAKEN FROM THE LAST SURVEYS.

[London : for W. Innys & J. Richardson, J. & P. Knapton & others], 1754. A fine eighteenth-century map of the adjacent Thames-side wards of Queenhithe and Vintry in the City of London, taking in College Hill, Queen Street, Garlick Hill and much of (Upper) Thames Street. This is the earliest map of the wards and is decorated with a baroque cartouche. The names of thirty-three smaller streets, alleys and courts are given in a keyed table. Originally produced by Richard Blome in the late seventeenth century, the map remained unpublished until 1720, with the present version originally prepared for the part-work edition of John Stow’s “A Survey of the Cities of London and Westminster” (London : 1754-1757).
Copper line engraving on laid paper. Engraved surface 309 x 178mm (approx. 12-1/8” x 7”). Just a hint of tanning, but overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map. Adams 37/061. Hyde (Ward Maps) 96/2 – and plate 24.
