A New Plan of the City of London, Westminster - STRYPE, John - 1720. 
1720 - London, 1720. Coloured. 500 x 680mm. Published in 'A Survey of the Cities of London & Westminster', the map shows Hyde Park Corner, Sadler's Wells, Mile End Road & Lambeth. Three large cartouches contain the title, the City Arms, and a dedication to George Thorold, the Lord Mayor. Some of the important buildings are shown in perspective, including Wren's St Paul's Cathedral, although that building is shown as an artist's impression, as it had not been completed. The style of the lettering would suggest that the map was engraved by Herman Moll. HOWGEGO: 66.
