Engraving, platemark 265 x 435mm (10½ x 17") very large margins.
View of Blenheim House in Woodstock, Oxfordshire. Following his victory at the Battle of Blenheim (known on the Continent as the Second Battle of Höchstädt) during the war of the Spanish Succession in 1704, the commander John Churchill, first duke of Marlborough was given land and £240,000 to build a palace as a gift from Queen Anne and the nation. Work on Blenheim Palace began the following year, to designs by Sir John Vanbrugh, although it was not completed until 1733, eleven years after Marlborough's death. He was commemorated by the 'Column of Victory' seen in the middle-ground of this print, which shows Marlborough dressed as a Roman general.

Engraving. 420 x 500mm. 16½ x 19¾". Centrefold as issued, short tears in bottom edge.
Plan of the Oxford Physic Garden, with four architectural vignettes and two banner cartouches supported by putti. Founded in 1621 by Henry Danvers, Earl of Danby (who is commemorated in Latin text in a cartouche upper left), its purpose was the study of medicinal plants. Building the Garden, on the site of the former medieval Jewish cemetery, cost the enormous sum of £5000. Much of that sum went on the walls which enclosed the original garden, and comparatively little was left for plants! It was renamed the Oxford Botanic Garden in 1840. Plate to David Loggan's (1635 - 1700?) 'Oxonia Illustrata' (Oxford, 1675). The volume contained an engraved titlepage, three plates of preliminaries, and forty unnumbered engraved plates, many double-page, of views of Oxford colleges.

Stanton Harcourt, a village and civil parish in Oxfordshire. The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book, and is probably named after the prehistoric stone circle known as the Devil's Quoits. An early unfortified Manor House, built to house the Harcourt family in the late 14th century; however most of the house was dismantled to use as foundations for Nuneham Courtney in 1756. One of the surviving parts is the medieval kitchen with its octagonal roof seen here on the left. The kitchen is open to the rafters, and smoke from the open fire would gather in the conical roof space, ventilated by louvers in the base of the roof.

Plate from the 'Spring Gardens Sketch Book' (8 vols., 1870-90). The architect Sir George Gilbert Scott (1811-78) had his office at Spring Gardens, near Trafalgar Square in London, from 1838 onwards. The publication of the 'Sketch Book' functioned as a form of advertising to promote the gifts of Scott's practice, with plates designed by his pupils and apprentices.
