Made by Johannes Kip after Jan Janszoon Struys. Johannes Kip (Amsterdam, 1653 – 1722, London) was a Dutch draughtsman, engraver and art dealer, active in England. He was a pupil of Bastiaan Stopendaal (1636–1707). His earliest dated engravings are of 1672, and he supplied numerous plates for books published from that date onwards. The work for which Kip is best remembered are the topographical engravings of country mansions, which were published in 1708 as Britannia Illustrata. This book is among the most important English topographical publications of the 18th century. Jan Janszoon Struys (1630-1694) was a Dutch explorer and navigator. He made three long voyages to Africa, Southeast Asia and Japan, on which he published his ‘Drie Aanmerkelyke Reizen’ (1675).
