William H Toms after Robert West - 18th Century Engraving, Allhallows
DescriptionA remarkably well kept engraving showing the South East prospect of the Church of Allhallows in London. The original drawing was by Robert West (1710-1770) and engraved by William Henry Toms (1700-1765). The print has been subtly hand coloured and the hues remain true. The plate has an inscription at the bottom giving the history of the church, a dedication and the printer's, artist's and engraver's names. There is a date in the top right corner. The print is presented in a smart cartridge card mount with a thin gilt effect frame. Signed in plate. On wove.
The condition is remarkable for a picture of this age with only a small amount of discolouration. The frame has some scuffs to the gilt.

William Henry Toms (c. 1700–1765) was an English engraver. He worked on portraits, book-plates, landscapes and prints of buildings. Among his works were the plates for Robert West's "Perspective Views of All the Ancient Churches in London" (1736–1739). In 1741, he worked with Thomas Badeslade on "Chorographia Britanniae or a New Set of Maps of all the Counties in England and Wales". The maps were republished on 29 September 1742, with additional place names.
