This plan was published in William Maitland's 'History of London from its Foundation to the Present Time'. The plan's title features in cartouche at middle left, with illustrated views of Guild Hall (top left), St Mildred's Church (bottom left), Grocers' Hall (top right) and Blackwell Hall (bottom right). The compass star appears at middle right, with the heraldic arms of dedicatee Samuel Fludyer (Alderman of the Cheap Ward and a city sheriff) at bottom centre. Maitland's ward plans were largely derived from Strype's plans, with the illustrations copied from West & Tow's 1736 'Prospect Views of Ancient Churches'.
