Medium: Pen and ink on paper
Date: ca. 1750
This is an 18th-century copy of a Ralph Treswell's 1610 plan of the property of St Bartholomew's Hospital. While better known as a painter in his lifetime, Ralph Treswell was also a mapmaker and one of the first surveyors of the modern era. This plan features a compass star in the middle and a scale bar in a table at the bottom left. London's Roman wall, Christ's Hospital and the properties along the way to St Bartholomew's Hospital are all shown pictorially.
