An elevation of famous mental hospital Moorfields, designed by Sir Robert Hooke. The governors of the hospital funded the first publication (1677) of this exceptionally large view, paying Robert White £40 to engrave the three plates and having final approval of his work. After presentation copies of the print were run off (for the govenors, Charles II and James, Duke of York, and others), the printing plates were given as a reward for service to the Clerk of the Governors 'to make the best advantage hee can thereof'. By 1694 the plates were owned by John Garrett (whose partially erase imprint can be seen at the bottom centre), before becoming the property of William Herbert. Herbert's address was the Golden Globe on London Bridge, one of ten new buildings erected on the bridge in 1749. He was forced to move when the bridge was cleared of buildings in 1759.
