A large, uncoloured post-fire city plan of London on two separate sheets based on John Leake’s 1667 publication that was engraved by Wenceslas Hollar and issued just after the great fire. Engraved by George Vertue and dedicated to the Society of Antiquaries, it shows a detailed view of the city identifying the extent of the great fire and changes to the streets following reconstruction. The plan clearly presents the location of the city’s streets and churches, highlighting the site reserved for the rebuilding of St. Paul’s. The top includes seven views of the city’s buildings including the old St. Paul’s, Guild Hall and Royal Exchange, and at the far right is a plan of London and Westminster with a key identifying 17 important places. Blank verso. Although the plan has its top margin reinstated in what appears to be an old repair with matching paper, both sheets are strong, dark impressions on heavy, stable paper in excellent condition. 53 cm x 63 cm (East sheet) 53 cm x 62 (West sheet).
