ANTIQUE PRINT: ST. MICHAEL BASSISHAW. (OR BASINGS HALL.)

CONEY, John, 1786-1833 : ST. MICHAEL BASSISHAW. (OR BASINGS HALL.)

[London : J. Booth, 1812. A handsome antique print – the exterior of the now-demolished Wren church of St. Michael Bassishaw on Basinghall Street, with its distinctive trumpet-cone and ball and finial (perhaps designed by Robert Hooke). Engraved by Joseph Skelton (1783-1871) from an original drawing (dated 1811 and 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.
Copper line engraving on paper. Engraved surface 255 x 164mm (approx. 10” x 6-1/2”). A few tiny marks, but overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique print. Adams 129/090.
