A large and detailed copper engraved map of the city and suburbs of Bristol, draw, serveyed and published by John Rocque in 1750. Surrounded by 10 view: A view of Redcliff Church on the south side with part of church yard -- A view of the Great Crain and Slip at the lower end of Princess Street -- The elevation of the Exchange of Bristol as it fronts north to the Peristyle... -- The elevation of the Exchange of Bristol as it fronts to the General Market ... -- Cathedral or the view of the college and rope walk from the opposite south side of the River Avon -- A view of Clifton and Brandon Hills from the south side of the River Avon -- A view of the High Cross and Cathedral Church from the north side of College Green -- The elevation of the Exchange of Bristol as it fronts north to Corn Street -- The elevation of the Exchange of Bristol as it fronts south to the Peristyle -- A view of St. Vincents Rocks with the Hot Well's from Mr Warrens House.
This is first state of the map, printed and published separately 1750 by Rocque itself. We only could locate a handful of copies of this separate published map in libraries world wide.
Evidence of two vertical old folds, very good condition. It is quite unusual to find a separate published map in such preservation.
John Rocque was an English engraver, active in London from 1734. He is best known for a 24-sheet plan of London published in 1746.
