ANTIQUE PRINT: ST. ANTHOLINS WATLING ST.

PEARSON, William : ST. ANTHOLINS WATLING ST.

London : H. Setchel & Son, 1810. A handsome antique print – the exterior of the old Wren church in the heart of the City – pulled down in 1875. Engraved by W. Preston from an original drawing (now in the British Museum) by William Pearson (fl.1798-1813). 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, relating to the dedication to St. Anthony of Vienna, etc.
Copper line engraving on paper. Engraved surface 280 x 161mm (approx. 11” x 6-3/8”). A couple of tiny marks, but overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique print. Adams 129/018.
