Early panoramic view of Birmingham, published as one of a pair along with a West Prospect. The cartouche at the bottom centre of the engraving dedicates the print to Thomas and Henry Archer: ‘To my worthy patrons / Thomas Archer and Henry Archer Esq.rs / This Plate is Humbly Dedicated / By their most Obedient Humble servant, W. Westley’.
On the left hand side of this dedication, the text reads: ‘Birmingham, a market town in the county of Warwick, which by the art and industry of its inhabitants, has for some years past, been render'd famous all over the world, for the rare choice and invention of all sorts of wares and curiousitys, in iron, steel, brass etc: admir'd for their cheapness, as their particular beauty of workmanship. See a further account in the west prospect’. To the right are listed seventeen places of interest, which are numbered on the print.
