St. Paul's cathedral seen from the south. Similar to 1991.1336.1 (P. 1017), but shown without the spire over the crossing tower, which had been struck by lightning and burned in 1561. The portico erected by Charles I is shown, as are changes to the nave. This first state was issued in William Dugdale's "History of St. Paul's Cathedral", 1658.
