ANTIQUE MAP : THE PARISH OF ST JOHNS WAPPING / THE PARISH OF ST PAUL SHADWELL.

[ENGLISH SCHOOL] : THE PARISH OF ST JOHNS WAPPING / THE PARISH OF ST PAUL SHADWELL.

[London : for W. Innys & J. Richardson, J. & P. Knapton & others], 1755. A highly attractive early eighteenth-century map – a double image with separate maps of the riverside parishes of Wapping and Shadwell. The first depicts the old sickle-shaped parish of Wapping extending north to Well Street and Neptune Street, down to the river via Nightingale Lane, and along Wapping High Street, via Wapping Stairs and Execution Dock, to Cinnamon Street, etc. The second shows the more compact parish of Shadwell, tightly packed around the church, with Wapping Wall, etc, to the south. Keyed tables give the names sixty-eight of the smaller streets, courts and alleys. Originally published in 1720, the present version of the map was produced for the 1754-1756 edition of John Stow’s “Survey of London”.
Copper line engraving on paper. Engraved surface 283 x 364mm (approx. 11-1/8” x 14-3/8”). Original light vertical fold; some mild browning and offsetting; short tears to upper margin, but overall in good state. A guaranteed genuine antique map. Adams 37/078.

ANTIQUE PRINT: ST. PAUL’S SHADWELL.

SHEPHERD, Thomas Hosmer, 1793-1864 : ST. PAUL’S SHADWELL.

London : J. Booth, 1819. A handsome antique print – the exterior of the original seventeenth-century church of St. Paul at Shadwell. Engraved by Thomas Dale (fl.1818-1828) from an original study by Thomas Hosmer Shepherd. Originally produced for the part-work series “Architectura Ecclesiastica Londini; being a Series of Views” (London : 1810-1823) – “the first artistically competent and exhaustive illustration of the golden age of London church building” (Adams). Below the image are several lines of text, explaining that the church was now demolished (in 1817) and about to be rebuilt.
Copper line engraving on paper. Engraved surface 212 x 231mm (approx. 8-3/8” x 9-1/8”). A few tiny marks, but overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique print. Adams 129/104.
