Engraving, sheet 105 x 150mm (4 x 6"). Cut to image.
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. Possibly derived from a larger but similar view published in a French series of city prospects by Crépy.
For Crépy's view see ref. 27811.
