Date: 1801

Map ref: SOM523
Description:
Separately issued folding plan of Bath on linen focusing on the rapid developments of the city, particularly Sydney Place and Gardens and Landsdown Square.

This is part of a sequence of plans of Bath, with the first edition issued in 1793 and further editions in 1796, 1799 and a last one in 1805 although A. (Anna) Taylor’s name is no longer on the map. Collectively, the plans record the rapid development of the city as it became a popular destination for the Georgian gentry.

R. (Robert) Hancock, the engraver is a notable figure in that field, a pioneer in the use of his engravings for transfer on Worcester Porcelain and later used by Sir Joshua Reynolds among others.

Folded. Case included. [SOM523]
