ANTIQUE PRINT: ALDERSGATE WARD WITH IT’S DIVISIONS INTO PRECINCTS AND PARISHES AND THE LIBERTY OF ST. MARTINS LE GRAND, ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

[BOWEN, Thomas, 1733?-1790] : ALDERSGATE WARD WITH IT’S DIVISIONS INTO PRECINCTS AND PARISHES AND THE LIBERTY OF ST. MARTINS LE GRAND, ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

[London : R. Baldwin, 1766]. An attractive antique map of the western fringe of the City of London, running from Barbican (now Beech Street) down to Newgate, via Aldersgate Street and St. Martin’s le Grand, with Noble Street and Foster Lane to the east, and Little Britain to the west. The map is decorated with a rococo title-piece, the arms of George Nelson (the then alderman), views of the churches of St. Anne & St. Agnes and St. Botolph Aldersgate, and a compass rose. Originally produced for the “London Magazine” for April 1766. Other maps in this series were engraved by Thomas Bowen and this would also appear to be his work.
Copper line engraving on paper. Later hand colour. Engraved surface 184 x 236mm (approx. 7-1/4” x 9-1/4”). Old and slight vertical folds, but in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map. Hyde (Ward Maps) 4/1.
