CONEY, John, 1786-1833 : ST. ALPHAGE.
London : J. Booth, 1814. A handsome antique print – the exterior of the old church of St. Alfege London Wall – here attributed to Sir Christopher Wren, but shown as rebuilt in 1777, with its Venetian window and two pedimented doors. The church was demolished in 1923. Engraved by Joseph Skelton (1783-1871) from an original drawing (now in the British Museum) by John Coney. 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 explanatory text.
