Hortus Botanicus. The Physick Garden in Oxon.
Hortus Botanicus. The Physick Garden in Oxon.
[Oxford, David Loggan, 1675.]
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.

The interior of Peterborough Abbey's tithe barn, built in the 13th century for the original abbey. In 1898 Rev. W.D. Sweeting wrote: "Until a very few years ago there was a mediaeval building at Peterborough of the greatest interest. This was the old Tithe Barn of the Abbey, situated in the Manor of Boroughbury, on the Lincoln Road. It was much the finest in the kingdom. Unhappily the ''enterprising builder'' has obtained possession of it, and it has been pulled down, the materials, all Barnack stone, having been employed in building houses. It was of good thirteenth century work, and in perfect condition. On the east side were two large porches, by which a waggon fully laden could enter the barn. The roof was supported by very massive timbers rising from the ground, the whole arrangement resembling a wooden church with aisles".
