A scarce "vue d'optique" (with mirror image title) bird's eye view of London.  Key sights shown in this unusual view are the Thames, London Bridge, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Globe theatre in the South Bank and Tower of London. The river is bustling with activity.  The view is very rare on the market.
