[London: Edward Hatton, 1708.]
Engraved map. Sheet 330 x 480mm (13 x 19"). Trimmed close to printed border, laid on card.
The last state of the famed Braun & Hogenberg map of London, originally published in 1572, but showing London before the destruction of the spire of the Norman St Paul's Cathedral in 1561 (during the reign of Mary I). After passing through the hands of publisher Jan Jannson in Amsterdam (who removed the original title and engraved a new cartouche over the original costumes), the plate was bought by a London publisher and used in Hatton's ''A New View of London; or, an Ample Account of that City'', with an English title replacing the Latin. The original issue is the earliest printed map of London to survive.
