ANTIQUE MAP: PORTSOKEN WARD WITH ITS DIVISIONS INTO PARISHES. FROM A LATE SURVEY.

[BOWEN, Thomas, 1733?-1790] : PORTSOKEN WARD WITH ITS DIVISIONS INTO PARISHES. FROM A LATE SURVEY.

[London : R. Baldwin], 1772. A pleasant antique map of Portsoken Ward – the eastern fringe of the City of London, taking in The Minories, Petticoat Lane, Houndsditch and Whitechapel (Aldgate High Street). The map is decorated with a prospect of St. Botolph Aldgate and a delicate rococo title-piece. Originally produced for the “London Magazine” in 1771, the present (slightly revised) version of the map was utilised in John Noorthouck’s part-work “A New History of London including Westminster and Southwark” (London : 1772-1773). Other maps in this series were engraved by Thomas Bowen and this would appear also to be his work.
Copper line engraving on paper. Engraved surface 171 x 224mm (approx. 6-3/4” x 8-7/8”). In very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map. Adams 51/025. Hyde (Ward Maps) 94/2.
