ANTIQUE MAP: TOWER STREET WARD WITH THEIR DIVISIONS INTO PARISHES ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

COLE, Benjamin, 1697?-1783 : TOWER STREET WARD WITH THEIR DIVISIONS INTO PARISHES ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

[London : for T. Osborne & J. Shipton; and J. Hodges, 1756]. A fine eighteenth-century map of Tower Street Ward at the south-eastern corner of the City of London, taking in (Lower) Thames Street, the Custom House, the churches of St. Dunstan in the East, Allhallows Barking and St. Olave Hart Street, (Great) Tower Street, Mark Lane, Mincing Lane and Seething Lane. The map is decorated with a rococo cartouche, the arms of the contemporary alderman (Thomas Chitty) and elevations of East India House and Westminster Hall. Originally engraved by Benjamin Cole for the part-work edition of William Maitland’s “History of London” (London : 1753-1756).
Copper line engraving on paper. Engraved surface 368 x 233mm (approx. 14-3/8” x 9-1/8”). Faint diagonal crease just touching one corner; mild browning and discolouration to left-hand edge; trimmed a little close, but otherwise in very good state. A guaranteed genuine antique map. Adams 38/040. Hyde (Ward Maps) 102.
