ANTIQUE MAP: BILLINGSGATE WARD AND BRIDGE WARD WITHIN, WITH THEIR DIVISIONS INTO PARISHES, ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

[BOWEN, Thomas, 1733?-1790] : BILLINGSGATE WARD AND BRIDGE WARD WITHIN, WITH THEIR DIVISIONS INTO PARISHES, ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

[London : R. Baldwin, 1767]. An attractive eighteenth-century map of Billingsgate Ward and Bridge Ward in the City of London. From the northern end of London Bridge the map extends across (Lower) Thames Street and Eastcheap into Gracechurch Street – taking in the Monument, Billingsgate Market and Fishmongers’ Hall, the churches of St. Magnus the Martyr, St. Margaret Pattens, St. Mary at Hill and St. George, as well as Love Lane, Botolph Lane, Pudding Lane and Fish Street Hill. The map is decorated with a cartouche, elevations of St. Mary at Hill and St. Botolph, Botolph Lane, and the coats of arms of Aldermen William Beckford and William Stephenson. Originally produced for the “London Magazine” in March 1767. Other maps in this series were engraved by Thomas Bowen and this would also appear to be his work.
Copper line engraving on paper. Later hand colour. Engraved surface 167 x 228mm (approx. 6-5/8” x 9”). Faint old vertical folds; just a hint of offsetting, overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map. Hyde (Ward Maps) 20.
