Product Description

A reissue of the original of 1657 by Peter Stent. The illustration shows the Lord Mayor, Robert Titchborn, on horseback in his Mayoral dress with a view of the City of London (including old St. Paul’s Cathedral) from across the Thames in the background. The original in the British Museum has the writing at the foot in manuscript showing that this later reissue with the wording engraved was taken exactly from that original. The reprint which is on paper watermarked 1794 has omitted the wording ñP>STENTî.
