Stow’s Survey of London, a ward-by-ward topographical and historical tour of the City of London giving an account of buildings, social conditions and customs, was first published in 1598. This view of Southwark Cathedral, labelled here as ‘the South Prospect of the Church of St Saviour in Southwark’, offers a charming perspective of the building’s architecture and churchyard.

Condition: Generally very good; slight offsetting from facing page and old library stamp to reverse.
