Description:
Covent Garden as it was in 1720, showing the area between Long Acre, Drury Lane, and The Strand. Published in John Strype's 1720 edition of John Stow's seminal "Survey of London", the first edition to include maps. Covent Garden had not yet been developed when Stow first published his survey in 1598, so the description and depiction was compiled by Strype himself. Coloured. [LDN6287]
