London and Westminster in the Reign of Queen Elizabeth, Anno Dom. 1563.
London and Westminster in the Reign of Queen Elizabeth, Anno Dom. 1563.
Neele sculp.t. No 352 Strand.
[London: Robert Faulder, n.d., c.1794.]
Engraved map. Watermark 'J. Whatman 1794'; 210 x 560mm (8¼ x 22"). Folded as issued.
A reduced version of one of the earliest plans of London ever produced, a woodcut incorrectly attributed to Agas. The style is much the same as Braun & Hogenberg, with the buildings shown in profile. St Paul's Cathedral is in the centre of the map, without the spire that had been destroyed by lightning in 1561; London Bridge has buildings on it; and The Globe and the Bull-Baiting Ring can be seen on the south bank of the river. Published in Thomas Pennant's 'Some Account of London', the original has been clarified with clearer names. Ralph Agas published a plan of Oxford and wrote of his intention to compile a map of London. This was enough to cause the attribution of this map to him.
