ARTIST/CARTOGRAPHER/ENGRAVER: 

Engraved by Daniel King. Daniel King was one of the earliest English togographical engravers/etchers and was taught by the well known Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677).

 

PROVENANCE: Originally published in 'Monasticon Anglicanum, or The History of Ancient Abbies, Monasteries,Hospitals, Cathedral and Collegiate Churches in England and Wales', by Sir William Dugdale. Initially printed in 3 volumes 1655-1673 with latin title. King's plates were almost immediately reprinted in his own publication "The Cathedrall and Conventuall Churches of England and Wales" (1656 & 1672). So from one of these publications although the title being in Latin only would suggest an early printing. Sir William Dugdale (12 September 1605 – 10 February 1686) was an English antiquary and herald. As a scholar he was influential in the development of medieval history as an academic subject.
