Kip Britannia Illustrata

Britannia Illustrata: Or Views of Several of the Queen's Palaces, also of the Principal seats of the Nobility and Gentry of Great Britain, Curiously Engraven on 80 Copper Plates. London (1707) [1708/9].. .Initially the Palaces, Mansions & Country Seats were etched by Kip, after birds-eye views after Leonard Knyff, Robert Atkyns, James Collins, David Loggan, William Emmett, David Lockley, James Simon, Wenceslaus Hollar, Henry Winstanley and others, but as the project developed, Kip produced both the drawings and the etchings. This, is Kip's best work, Britannia Illustrata is among the most important English topographical publications of the 18th. century.They clearly delineate not only the buildings but the entire estates, for example the entire orchards, gardens and other details are depicted with great accuracy. Printed upon early eighteenth century hand-made, laid paper and with the vertical centre fold, as always. Johannes Kip (1653 - 1722) was a Dutch draughtsman, engraver, and print dealer who was active in England, after producing works for the court of William of Orange in Amsterdam. Following the Glorious Revolution of 1688, Kip accompanied the Court to England and settled in Westminster, where he conducted a thriving print selling business from his house in St. John's Street. He also worked for various London publishers producing engravings, largely for book illustrations. His most important works were the execution of the illustrations for Britannia Illustrata, 1708; The Ancient and Present State of Gloucestershire, 1712, and Le Nouveau Theatre de la Grande Bretagne, 1715. Leonard Knyff (1650 - 1721) was a Dutch draughtsman and painter, who collaborated with Johannes Kip to produce views of country houses and gardens for the publications, Britannia Illustrata, 1708 ; Le Nouveau Theatre de la Grande Bretagne, 1715.. . . newer items to the top Cathedrals at base of page  Data page click here

Badminton 'Badmington in the County of Gloucester

'L. Knyff d.' 'I. Kip S. [London: Joseph Smith, 1724]; copperplate engraving, 328 x 478 W: 348 x 485 PM: 357 x 490mm,A fine example. . One fold as published, plate mark and good margins. Henry, Duke of Beaufort, built the house in 1682. He had a real passion for avenues, and his park grounds were traversed by numbers of walks, twenty of them starting from one point like the centre of a star. It is said that he infected his neighbours with his own enthusiasm, so that they let him extend the avenues into their territory, and in this way he obtained more distant and glorious views. But the gardens too cover a very large tract of land. They lie round a house in the middle of a great park, with the chief avenue two and a half miles long leading to the entrance. On the left of it there are parterres and a bowling-green. Behind the parterres, and in a straight line with them, are bosquets with fountains and finely designed paths; at the very end is a semicircular little room cut out of the hedge and containing two fountains. Condition:a few minute closed tears, small loss by top fold from a bookworm; tinted
