A large map of London in the early 16th century

NEWTON, William

London, Westminster and Southwark as in the Olden Times, shewing the city, and its suburbs with the churches, monasteries and all the important buildings as they stood in the reign of Henry VIII before the Reformation.
London: William Newton & Bell & Daldy, 1855. Coloured. Dissected and laid on linen, total 1020 x 1360mm.

A large bird's-eye view/plan of early 16th century London, with the important buildings shown in profile, and a huge 436-point key of landmarks. Newton has compiled the map from a number of sources, including the Braun & Hogenberg and the 'Agas' maps; the elevation of the Norman St Paul's cathedral is copied from the etching by Wenceslas Hollar, showing the building before the spire was destroyed by lightning in 1561. Although the plan proports to show London in Tudor times the area destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666 is also marked.
