One of the most decorative and detailed plans of London, published by Johann Baptist Homann's successors known as Homann Heirs. The engraving shows a beautiful large cartouche with the Royal Coats of Arms and title in Latin and German; an additional explanation about horse drawn carriages, their taxation and other related matters; a large image of St. Paul's Cathedral and the Royal Bourse as well as two additional vignettes showing St. James' Square and Custom House. Though the names of streets and places are all in English, the descriptive text is in German and Latin.
