London, by Marcus Willemsz. Doornick.

VERY RARE

Howgego mentions two variations of this print: A broadsheet without reference numbers and below the map a description of the fire in Dutch, French and English, and another edition with a different title. He mentions a variant of this second edition in a private collection, without descriptive text and with titles in German. This variant is the same as the one we have.
