ANTIQUE PRINT: ST. BENNET (ie ST. BENEDICT) PAULS WHARF.

PEARSON, William : ST. BENNET (ie ST. BENEDICT) PAULS WHARF.

[London : H. Setchel & Son, 1810]. A handsome antique print – an exterior view of the Wren church of St. Benet Paul’s Wharf, with its garlanded windows, tower and cupola – the church now the London Church of the Welsh Episcopalians. Engraved by William Johnstone White (fl.1804-1812) from an original drawing (dated 1810 and 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” (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.
Copper line engraving on paper. Engraved surface 249 x 159mm (approx. 9-3/4” x 6-1/4”). A few tiny specks, but overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique print. Adams 129/026.
