This plan was published in Maitland's 'History of London from its Foundations to the Present Day'. The title features in cartouche at the foot of the pate, together with the arms of Sir Crisp Gascoyne, Alderman of Vintry Ward, and Martin Dickinson, Alderman of Queenhithe Ward. The scale bar and compass star feature near top left, facing an illustrated view of the parish church of St Michael at bottom left. Maitland's ward plans were largely derived from Strype's plans, with the illustrations copied from West & Tow's 'Prospect Views of Ancient Churches' of 1736.
