Map of The River Thames
Copper engraving, published by John Stockdale, Piccadilly, 1798.
Scale 2.1/8” to 10 statute miles.
Plate size: 10” x 34.1/8”+ margins.
Very good, clean condition. Folds pressed. Small area missing in left border (expertly repaired).
This scarce map was included in The History of London and its Environs containing An Account of the Origin of the City...To its Present State of Commercial Greatness… Likewise an Account of all the Towns, Villages and Country within Twenty Five Miles of London. Printed for John Stockdale, Piccadilly by S. Goswell, Little Queen St, Holborn 1811. This finely engraved copper engraving is a classic example of Stockdale’s style. Whilst without the elaborate decoration and embellishment of some maps, its clarity and accuracy is also balanced with a simple grace and elegance.
