An old coloured city plan of early 18th century London from Edward Hatton’s book detailing life in the post-fire metropolis entitled “A New View of London…” published in 1708. The plan, which appears to be based on a 1682 survey by William Morgan, shows the greater London area from Buckingham House (now Buckingham Palace) in west to Ratcliff in the east and from Hoxton in the north to Lambeth in the south. The plan, which is reasonably detailed and very well engraved, clearly identifies the city’s important landmarks, main streets and churches. At the top of the plan are two cartouches, the left one showing the London coat of arms and on the right is a list of parties for whom it was printed including Richard Chiswell and A & J Churchill. Blank verso. The plan, which has been backed with lens paper, has some very minor losses to its folds and a portion of the lower left side margin replaced with minor loss to the image. Otherwise, a fine example of this uncommon plan in very good condition. 31.5 cm x 57 cm
