View of Brighton New Church


Aquatint by and after John Bruce and published by him in his Select Views of Brighton 1824. It shows the proposed spire, modelled on that of Chichester Cathedral, but in the end no spire was built. Having engraved and published the top illustration showing the intended design, when the idea for the spire was abandoned, John Bruce had to re-engrave the plate in 1829, taking out the spire and cutting off the top two inches of the plate, to produce BPC00363.
