Description

Antique steel engraved print of Hampton Court Palace, Middlesex. The home of Cardinal Wolsey, it was expropriated by Henry VIII, when Wolsey fell out of favour. Although a Royal Palace, it has not been inhabited by the Royal Family since the eighteenth century. This image is from ‘Curiosities of Great Britain. England and Wales Delineated. Historical, Entertaining & Commercial, Alphabetically Arranged  by Thomas Dugdale, Antiquarian. Assisted by William Burnett.’ (Dugdale was a professional artist, whilst Burnett was a civil engineer by profession.) Together they produced a series of steel engraved prints of English and Welsh architectural and topographical features, together with County Maps. Thanks to Wikipedia for the linked information.
