description
An image of how a print would look if printed from the City section of The Copperplate Map which dates from the 1550’s and is the first known map of London. Made in fifteen copper sections, or plates, only three are still in existence. Two plates which depict the areas around Moorfields and the City are in the Museum of London and a third plate, held by the Dessau Art Gallery, shows the area around St Paul's Cathedral.
