ANTIQUE MAP: BAYNARDS CASTLE WARD AND FARINGDON WARD WITHIN, WITH THEIR DIVISIONS INTO PARISHES, ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

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

[London : R. Baldwin, 1767]. A most attractive eighteenth-century plan of the adjacent wards of Castle Baynard and Farringdon Ward Within at the western end of the City of London. Centred on St. Paul’s (shown in elevation) the map takes in Newgate Street, the western end of Cheapside, Ludgate Hill, Carter Lane, Upper Thames Street and the roads southwards to Blackfriars and the Thames. The map is decorated with a rococo cartouche and elevations of the churches of St. Benet Paul’s Wharf, St. Martin Ludgate and St. Andrew by the Wardrobe. Originally produced for the “London Magazine” in August 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 185 x 243mm (approx. 7-1/4” x 9-1/2”). Faint old vertical folds; a hint of tanning, but overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map. Hyde (Ward Maps) 47/2.

ANTIQUE MAP: BAYNARDS CASTLE WARD AND FARINGDON WARD WITHIN, WITH THEIR DIVISIONS INTO PARISHES, ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY.

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

[London : R. Baldwin], 1772. A most attractive eighteenth-century plan of the adjacent wards of Castle Baynard and Farringdon Ward Within at the western end of the City of London. Centred on St. Paul’s (shown in elevation) the map takes in Newgate Street, the western end of Cheapside, Ludgate Hill, Carter Lane, Upper Thames Street and the roads southwards to Blackfriars and the Thames. The map is decorated with a rococo cartouche and elevations of the churches of St. Benet Paul’s Wharf, St. Martin Ludgate and St. Andrew by the Wardrobe. Originally produced for the “London Magazine” in 1767, the present version of the map (revised to show the newly built Blackfriars Bridge) was utilised in John Noorthouck’s part-work “A New History of London” (London : 1772-1773). 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 185 x 243mm (approx. 7-1/4” x 9-1/2”). A few tiny marks, but overall in very good and clean state. A guaranteed genuine antique map. Adams 51/016. Hyde (Ward Maps) 47/2.
