The Beauties of Stow were engraved by George Bickham [1706?–1771] from drawings by the Frenchman Jean-Baptiste-Claude Chatelain [1710–1771]. Stowe was one of the most famous gardens in England, boasting designs by some of the most celebrated English gardeners. Charles Bridgeman, Richard Kent, and Capability Brown all had a hand in designing the garden. The 1753 edition of Bickham’s prints were reissued in several editions throughout the second half of the eighteenth century, so it is difficult to identify the precise date.
