This plan was published in William Maitland's 'History of London from its Foundation to the Present Day'. The title features in cartouche at bottom centre, next to the arms of ward Alderman Richard Glynn and the Lord Mayor of London Slingsby Bethell. The compass star appears at top centre with views of the parish churches of St Stephen and St Michael down the right side of the plate. Maitland's ward plans were largely derived from Strype's, with the illustrations copied from West & Tow's 1736 'Prospect Views of Ancient Churches'.
