Johannes Kip (1652 – 1722) after R Whitehand

Prospect of Cambridge from the South East (1724)


57 x 88 cm

A view of the city of Cambridge, replete with college spires, by Johannes ”Jan” Kip, the Dutch draughtsman, engraver and print dealer. The engraving illustrates an 18th century Cambridge defined by livestock and farmhands, as well as its University. The largest and best view of Cambridge, extremely rare – we have not traced any other copies at auction.

Condition: good. Previously folded, occasional small losses and the odd slightly toned patch; two joined sheets. Trimmed to within platemark; very rare.
