This 1767 London plan came from an American collector, who had erroneously attributed it to John Pine (1690-1756). It is cited in Howgego (No. 144) as Anonymous, and was most likely published in The Gentleman's Magazine (first published in 1731 by Edward Cave), The Universal Magazine of Knowledge and Pleasure (first published 1740), or similar publication.

The plan is split at the folds and has been repaired with archival tape.
