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.

Four scenes relating to the Spanish Match treaty, from Kaspar Ens' ''Fama Austriaca'': James I signing the treaty in the Chapel Royal; James dining with the Spanish ambassador; James in procession; and a prospect of London, with the Norman St Paul's Cathedral. In 1614 a Spanish embassy arrived in London to reach agreement to stop English privateers attacking Spanish shipping in the Americas and prevent England joining the Thirty Years' War. In return Spain would cease supporting opponents of James's rule in Ireland. Spain also proposed the marriage of the Spanish Infanta to Charles, Prince of Wales (later Charles I), promising a dowry of half-a-million pounds. James, who desperately needed money, was enthusiastic, but Parliament refused to accept any deal and James dissolved it in fury. It eventually transpired that the Infanta had no intention of marrying a protestant, and Spain was just stringing out negotiations to stop England entering the war. In 1625 Charles married Henrietta Maria of France instead.

Other landmarks in the key are Buckingham Palace, Regents Park, St Paul's, Monument and London Bridge. We have assigned the date of 1865 because of the Hungerford Railway Bridge of John Hawkshaw which opened in 1864 and a cursory depiction of Joseph Bazalgette's Victoria Embankent, started 1865 and not finished until 1870. Little is known about the artist, Charles François de Riffardeau, Duc de Rivière (1848-1920). He produced a volume 'Vues de Londres dessinées d'après nature et lithographiées' in 1862 (not including this prospect).

Canaletto (Giovanni Antonio Canal, 1697-1768) lived in London from 1746 to 1756, the early part coinciding with the building of Westminster Bridge, which was only the second bridge to be built in the metropolis. This view of London was taken from under one of the arches of the bridge, with the wooden buttressing in place, three years before the bridge opened. The original oil is in the Duke of Northumberland's collection in Syon House. Canaletto also painted both Sion House and the Duke's London home, Northumberland House.

Etching, sheet 95 x 130mm (3¾ x 5").
View of London from Islington made shortly before the Great Fire of London, with the old St Paul's cathedral in the distance and three men practicing archery in the foreground. Etching by Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-77), Bohemian printmaker who spent most of his career working in England. Hollar's technical skill has ensured that his prints have always been keenly collected, and comprehensive collections of his work are at institutions in London, Berlin and Prague. Hollar's life was changed when he met Thomas Howard, second earl of Arundel, at Cologne in 1636: for eight months he travelled in Arundel's retinue at travelled with him to London, taking lodgings at Arundel House and marrying a servant of the countess of Arundel. This is one of a group of small views from north London sometimes thought to have been issued as a set.
