The plans for this reissue of John Stow's Survey of London were probably originally engraved by Richard Blome just before his death in 1705. However, the edition took until 1720 to achieve publication and the plans required revision due to the city's rapid growth. Blome was credited in the preface but his name was erased from the plates.
