Eredi Johannes Baptiste HOMANN (1730 - 1813)
Regionis qvae est circa Lodinvm...
1720. "Bella mappa della regione di Londra con sotto una veduta panoramica della città, tratta dal ""Atlas..."" edito dagli eredi della tipografia Homann. Incisione in rame, bella coloritura coeva con ritocchi, in buone condizioni." Extending north as far as Luton and south to Leatherhead this map encompasses much of modern London. Many of today's inner-city boroughs are outlying hamlets and villages on the eighteenth-century map. Occupying the lower quarter of the plate is a magnificent view of London and Westminster from Southwark, showing the tight curve of the Thames with identifiable buildings beyond. Homann's map of the London Environs is based on that produced in London by Thomas Bowles and he is credited in the title banner (with information in both Latin and German). Printed on thick paper (typical of the Nuremberg mapmakers) and with original colour, this is an extremely interesting London map.
