Four early 18th century copperplate engravings from Britannia Illustrata, The Principal seats of the Nobility and Gentry of Great Britain published first between 1707 and 1712 and again in 1720. The plates depict stunning bird’s eye topographical views of significant English buildings and the estate grounds surrounding them. The views are important records of both architecture and formal garden design of the period, which in many instances have since been altered beyond recognition. The artists responsible were Leonard Knuff (1650-1722) and Johannes Kip (1652-1722) genius Dutch artists, who both drew and engraved this and similar work. Images include: House at Chelsea, Middlesex, Chiswick, Middlesex, Battsford, Gloucestshire, and Melton Constable, Norfolk.
