BANKS, J.H.
A Panoramic View of London. London, Edward Wallis, c.1850. Coloured. 440 x 1000mm. A few small repairs
A superbly detailed 'balloon-view' of London, taken from a point above Kennington. On the left edge are Vauxhall Bridge, Hyde Park Corner and Regents Park; on the right the Tower and West India Docks; in the foreground Lambeth Palace and the Elephant & Castle; and on the far horizon Highgate Archway. First published in 1843 with the title 'A Cosmogramic View…', this state was retitled with 'Panoramic' as 'Cosmoramic' had dropped from usage.
