Buck ChesterSamuel and Nathaniel Buck.
The South West Prospect of the City of Chester.
S. &. N. Buck delin et Sculp.t 1728.
Engraving   Wide margins.
A view of the city, with a description and a key listing buildings and places of interest underneath.
The brothers Samuel and Nathaniel Buck were born in Richmond, North Yorkshire, around the end of the 17th century. Both were artists and engravers, and together they produced the first comprehensive series of English and Welsh town prospects. Their work began in 1728 with views of Chester, Derby, Lancaster, Liverpool, Manchester and Preston. Individual prints were sold in the locality to raise sufficient funds to continue to the next town. For convenience and economy the brothers felt it necessary to base themselves in London where they would return in autumn laden with drawings for engraving. The work was completed in 1749, twenty one years after they started, an extraordinary achievement: in total eighty nine prospects were produced, including one of London from Westminster Bridge to the Tower on five-sheets.
Nathaniel died about 1756 and Samuel lived until 1779. A few years before Samuel died Robert Sayer purchased the copper plates from him, re-issuing them in 1774 in a volume. The imprints were not altered but were arranged alphabetically by place name and each provided with a plate number in the top right corner.
