An unusual prosepct view of Chester; this view of the city was published in the 'Libellus Novus Politicus Emblematicus Civitatum'. The figure is a supposed to be a symbolic personification of envy; snakes instead of hair and biting into a human heart.

The envious man torments himself the most, by perpetually gnawing his own heart".

[Land grant, Cheshire] Carta Donationis Terrarum in Congilton [Com: Cestriae] a Dno Henrico de Lacy Comite Lincoln Benedicto Filio Walteri de Stanley. circa Annum 1300.28.Ed.1.concessa.
(maxima preservacoe) penes Ric: Rawlinson, LLD et RSS. [British, c.1754].
Engraved facsimile of a c.1300 Latin grant of land to Henry de Lacy, 3rd Earl of Lincoln; seal below text. Sheet 210 x 230mm, (8¼ x 9"). Tears and holes, trimmed. Damaged.
The land around Congleton in Cheshire is granted by the de Stanley family to the powerful nobleman de Lacy, who became Chief Councillor to Edward I. While the king was engaged on military conflicts with the Scots, Henry de Lacy was appointed Protector of the Realm. The original document is from the collection of Richard Rawlinson (1690 - 1755), a clergyman and antiquarian who bequeathed a huge collection of books and manuscripts to the Bodleian Library, Oxford. In 1716 he was ordained, but as he was a nonjuror and Jacobite, the ceremony was performed by a nonjuring bishop, Jeremy Collier. In 1728 he became a bishop, but seems to have preferred to pass his time in collecting books and manuscripts, pictures and curiosities, rather than in discharging his episcopal functions. At his death Rawlinson left to the Library 5,205 manuscripts bound in volumes that include many rare broadsides and other printed ephemera, his curiosities, and some other property that endowed a professorship of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford. The Rawlinsonian Professor of Anglo-Saxon was first appointed in 1795. He was also a benefactor to St John's College, Oxford.
