Notes:
Two bird's eye views of London, printed on one sheet. The top view shows London, looking north from the summit of the Duke of York's column. The bottom view shows London, looking south.
The panorama was composed after daguerreotypes by Antoine Claudet. The images were drawn on wood by G.F. Sargent, and engraved by Ebenezer Landells (and 18 assistants).
"The print--the first illustrated newspaper giveaway--was presented gratis to all six-month subscribers of the Illustrated London news on 7 January 1843 ... Later the Illustrated London news put the panorama on sale, the two views colored and linked to form one continuous strip (but not one continuous view) ..."--Hyde.
