ANTIQUE MAP: BROAD STREET & CORNHILL WARDS, DIVIDED INTO PARISHES, ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

[BOWEN, Thomas, 1733?-1790] : BROAD STREET & CORNHILL WARDS, DIVIDED INTO PARISHES, ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

[London : R. Baldwin, 1768]. An antique map of Broad Street and Cornhill Wards in the City of London. Centred on Lothbury, Throgmorton Street and Threadneedle Street, the map extends from Cornhill and the upper end of Gracechurch Street in the south, northwards to London Wall via Broad Street and Bishopsgate. The principal buildings shown include the Bank of England, the Royal Exchange, etc. The map (here in its earlier state, still showing Gresham College) is decorated with views of the now long-since demolished churches of St. Christopher Threadneedle Street, St. Bartholomew by the Exchange, and St. Bennet Fink, etc. Originally produced for the “London Magazine” for February 1768. Other maps in this series were engraved by Thomas Bowen and this would also appear to be his work.
Copper line engraving on paper. Engraved surface 179 x 231mm (approx.7" x 9-1/8”). Faint old vertical folds, a couple of minor spots, but otherwise in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map. Hyde (Ward Maps) 39/1.

SULMAN, Thomas, 1832-1900 : FROM THE POULTRY TO BISHOPSGATE STREET AND TO WHITECHAPEL.

[London : Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent & Co, and Love & Malcomson, 1902].

Designed by the architectural draughtsman Thomas Sulman, engraved by William Michael Roberts Quick (1838-1927), and originally produced for Herbert Fry’s “London” in 1880, but here in a slightly later impression.
