QUEEN HITH Ward and VINTRY Ward. with their Division into Parishes taken from the last SurveyA Survey of the Cities of London & Westminster. John Strype. 1755 Stock Code: 56129
NotesJohn Stow's, A Survey of London, was first published in 1598, with a second edition following in 1603. Stow's most famous work, it is an evocative 'perambulation' of the streets of the Tudor capital, which forms the main framework of the book.
The huge growth of the metropolis, the devastation wrought by the Great Fire of 1666 and the subsequent rebuilding of the City made an updating of the Survey highly desirable. It was to answer this need that John Strype (1643-1737), the ecclesiastical historian and biographer, published a new, hugely expanded version of Stow's Survey of London in 1720.
