Important and very rare plan of King's Lynn
A large and detailed copper engraved plan of King's Lynn Harbour in Norfolk, drawn and published by Gulielmus Rastrick in 1725. Oriented with north to the left of the page.
With two decorative cartouches, two vignette illustrations of 'Porticus Nundinaria Lennensis' and 'Bursa Lennensis' in the lower corners, a compass rose, coat of arms, a mileage scale and a key in Latin and English from A to BB with important buildings and places, another key from 1 to 50 with street and bridge names, two medallions and a inset city view in the lower left corner.
We only could locate one copy of this separate published map in libraries world wide. It can be found in the Library of The Royal Society in UK.
Evidence of two vertical old folds, very good condition. It is quite unusual to find a separate published map in such preservation.
