An Exact Plan and Section of Old Sarum:Also, The East View of that antient city, as it then stood, (before its Reduction) in 553.
Salisbury. Printed & Sold at the Printing Office 1761 [for the Society of Antiquaries].
Engraving, scarce, printed on 18th century watermarked paper. Binding folds flattened.
A plan and wildly imaginative reconstruction of the Saxon hill fort at Old Sarum, near Salisbury, Wiltshire, with an extensive engraved description. The reconstruction owes more to medieval development than Saxon. The print was also produced in Salisbury, appealing to local interest in the history of Old Sarum. Old Sarum is perhaps best-known in art history as the subject of a painting by John Constable.
