AGAS, Ralph. [A decorative plan of London in 1563]
London and Westminster in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, Anno Dom. 1563. London, J. Wallis, 1789. Contemporary colour. Dissected and laid on linen, total 410 x 1040mm.
A reduced version of one of the earliest plans of London ever produced, incorrectly attributed to Agas. The style is much the same as Braun & Hogenberg, with the buildings shown in profile. St Paul's Cathedral is in the centre of the map, without the spire that had been destroyed by lightning in 1561; London Bridge has buildings on it; and The Globe and the Bull-Baiting Ring can be seen on the south bank of the river.
