Londinium Antiqua. This Plan shews the ancient extent of the famous cities of London and Westminster as it was near the begining of the Reign of Queen Elizabeth [...]
Vertue, Soc. Antiq. London excudit 1737.
Engraving on pewter, two sheets (of eight) conjoined, total 355 x 940mm. Repairs to folds. Ink stamps of the Paul Mellon Collection on reverse.
The bottom left corner of a map of Tudor London, engraved on pewter by George Vertue from a comtemporary woodcut in the possession of Sir Hans Sloane. The strip here shows Westminster, Whitehall, Lambeth Palace and Charing Cross, the buildings south of the Strand and Fleet Street, to St Paul's Cathedral and Barnard's Castle. Under the title is a list of buildings not present, as a guide to dating the map. Three examples of an anonymous woodcut map of London c.1570 exist, all now in institutions. Vertue, an enthusiastic member of the Society of Antiquaries, researched the map and attributed it to Ralph Agas (c.1540-1621), solely on the basis of a letter in which Agas spoke of his intentions of making such a plan. The style is much the same as Braun & Hogenberg, with the buildings shown in profile, and many of the details are shared. However on this plan St Paul's Cathedral is without the spire hit by lighting and destroyed in 1561 (not shown here as the building runs off the top of the present sheet).

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.

An Entire New Plan of the Cities of London & Westminster; with the Borough of Southwark:
An Entire New Plan of the Cities of London & Westminster; with the Borough of Southwark: Comprehending the New Buildings and other Alterations, to the Year 1809.
Pub.d Jan.y 1st 1809 by Edw.d Mogg, No 14 Little Newport Street, Liecester [sic] Square, London.
Engraved map, one sheet only of two. 460 x 490mm, 18 x 19¼". Old folds with wear, two areas of hand colour added, probably contemporary.
The west sheet of a two sheet map of London, showing Paddington top left, Pentonville, Charter House, half of St Paul's Cathedral, St George's Circus, Elephant & Castle, Lambeth Palace, Sloane Square and the Serpentine. The original owner of the map has marked two areas in the parishes of Clerkenwell and Bloomsbury: around St Andrew's Burial Ground, east of Gray's Inn Lane, is the 'Site of the intended Cattle market' (never built); and covering part of St Ormond Street and Millman Street is the 'Rugby Estate', the property of Rugby School. In 1814, when raising money to build a chapel at the school, Rugby listed some 149 houses on its London estate, with rents of £2,378. However later in the century the area was less popular as a residential area, with some of the school's property degenerating into slums. Some of the buildings were sold to Great Ormond Street Hospital, but the Estate failed to redevelop some of its older streets before new planning legislation made this impossible. In the 1970s 42 freeholds were sold to Camden Borough Council and other delapidated Georgian buildings were demolished.

To the Trustees and Directors of the Phoenix Fire-Office. This Work is most Respectfully Dedicated by Their much Obliged Obedient Humble Servant. R: Horwood. Explanation. Dwelling Houses Engraved...Churches Chapels &c...Inns of Court...Stabling Warehouses &c &c...Boundaries of Parishes...The Public will observe that there are many Streets &c where the Numbers are omitted, such are either without Numbers, or are so very irregular and frequently changed that they could not with propiety be inserted. It may be observed that the Numbers in the Strand, Fleet Street, Holborn &c are irregular, but in those long Streets the Proprietor though it necessary to insert them particularly as they are much less liable to alteration. As in many parts of the Town the Houses are too small to admit two figures_abreast it was thought best to put them in the following Order....which will be as well understood, look much neater and be more easily erased and corrected. Should the Commissioners appointed for that purpose, and the Parishes think proper at any future period to make a regulation in the Numbring, The Proprietor would in that Case with pleasure furnish any Gentleman who may desire it, with a New Sett of Impressions in exchange for the Old, at a trifling expence. The Proprietor thinks it his Duty to state to the Public, that he never pledged himself to show the interior or extent of the back parts of the Premises...The Proprietor will make any addition required at the least possible expence.
Published as the Act Directs by R. Horwood May 24 1799.
Etching and engraving, original outline colour. Plate 573 x 1035mm. 22½ x 40¾". Slight ink offset, bottom right corner patched.
A plate from cartographer Richard Horwood's 'Plan of the Cities of London and Westminster the Borough of Southwark and Parts adjoining Shewing every House'. This magnificent map was made up of 32 such sheets, published sheet by sheet between 1792 and 1799. Horwood (1758 - 1803) intended originally to show every house and its number but this was to prove impossible: Although every house is included the numbering was never completed. Horwood dedicated this map to the Trustees and Directors of the Phoenix Fire Office, reflecting that the protection of London from fire was at this time the reserve of numerous independent company brigades. This sheet, watermarked 'Horwood's Plan of London', covers Deptford and a small piece of the Isle of Dogs, with the details of 'His Majesty's Dock Yard deliberately blank.
