London In The Reign Of Queen Elizabeth / Civitas Londinum : R. Agas / J. Dower

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A large scale and very decorative plan of London and the South Bank with the areas to the north in perspective. There is some uncertainty as to the true origin of this spectacular piece prepared here by John Dower and published by Cassell, Petter and Galpin. Dower suggests on the map that is "is a Facsimile (reduced) of the Old One by Ralph Agas in the year 1560", which was once in the possession of Sir Hans Sloane. Whatever its original source, this is a very striking and decorative "birds-eye" map/view of Elizabethan London which still has, surprisingly, much in common with today's street layout and structure. Dower discreetly interposes modern bridges such as those of Waterloo and Westminster in order to place the map in a nineteenth century topographical context. With the Royal Arms and the Arms of the City of London shown and much original wash colour in evidence, this is a most impressive item.
