The Middle Temple, completed in 1573, is perhaps the finest example of an Elizabethan Hall in Britain. This print shows its double hammer beam roof to good advantage. The High Table, made from a single oak, is believed to have been given to the Inn by Elizabeth I. Engraved and published by James Peller Malcolm (1767-1815), an American artist who moved to England in around 1789.
