a Paris chez Crepy rue St. Jacques a St. Pierre [n.d., c.1700].
Engraving with very large margins, 215 x 315mm. 8½ x 12½".
London and Southwark, with London Bridge crossing the River Thames. The panorama features St. Paul's Cathedral in its previous gothic incarnation, before the Wren building that was completed in 1708. This suggests a piracy of an engraving made before the Great Fire of London of 1666, or that the plate pre-dates the adoption of Wren's design. Key below title. From a series of city prospects; the publisher is Jean or Louis Crépy.
