Americas.- Heap (After George) and Scull (Nicholas). An East Perspective View of the City of Philadelphia, in the Province of Pensylvania, in North America; taken from the Jersey Shore, illustrating the city as it was in 1752, with 14 numbered points of interest, engraving with original hand-colouring in gouache, on laid paper with indistinct text-based watermark, platemark 280 x 430 mm. (11 x 17 in), sheet 340 x 490 mm. (13 1/2 x 19 1/4 in), an early state dated '1778' but without the number '38' and the publisher's letters normally found in the lower left corner, minor surface dirt and handling creases, mainly to margin, some minor abrasion to colouring of the sky, unframed, Carington Bowles, 'at his Map & Print Warehouse', 1778.
cf. Deek 101; Snyder 100
⁂ 'The most decorative of all the reissues of Scull and Heap's 1754 east prospect of Philadelphia.' [Snyder]. A similar, albeit slightly later copy, of comparable quality was in the Jay T. Snyder Collection, sold by Bloomsbury Auctions New York (19th November 2008, lot 88). The present impression however appears to be a notably early state from 1778, both without numbers and publisher's details normally found in the lettered margin.
