Edmund Waller (1606-1687) was a poet and wit of wavering political allegiance. He died at Hall Barn, the house he had designed and owned in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire. In the Civil War, Waller first supported Parliament and then led a plot ('Waller Plot') to seize London for Charles I. He was sentenced to death, but the sentence was commuted to a fine of £10,000 and exile in 1644; was pardoned by Cromwell's influence; praised Cromwell in verse, but later rejoiced in his death.

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.

A fountain in the background, the park with the house in the distance on the left shore. Stowe was begun by Sir Richard Temple in 1676, his family having risen from sheep farmers under Elizabeth I. Over the next century, Viscount Cobham and then Earl Temple (Cobham’s Grenville nephew) rebuilt it into the great classical show house and landscape which still amazes visitors today. Numerous famous architects worked at Stowe House and Gardens. Among them were Sir John Vanbrugh, William Kent, James Gibbs, Robert Adam, Thomas Pitt and Sir John Soane, making Stowe one of the most important houses and estates in the country. The house is now part of Stowe School, founded in 1923.
