        Map of 'the Cittie of London', 1633

        Ryther, Augustus (fl.1572-92) (atrr. to). English. Medium: hand-coloured engraving. Date: 1633. This plan was produced to satisfy a European market, and contains certain inaccuracies which a native Londoner would not have tolerated. The streets appear very much wider than they were in actuality. Houses are depicted as having large gardens, when these had, in fact, begun to disappear from London two centuries before. The map details the gap at the north end of London Bridge, caused by a fire in 1632. Provenance: Private Collection.
