- Curator's comments
- This print was probably used as an illustration to William Dugdale's 'Monasticon Anglicanum' (London, 1661), and to King's 'Monasticon Anglicanum, or The Cathedral and Conventuall Churches of England and Wales' (London, John Overton, 1672), though since there were variations between the prints used in each work, this awaits a definitive conclusion. See the ODNB entry on King for the complicated relationship between the two works entitled 'Monasticon Anglicanum' by Dugdale and King.
See 1880,1113.2538 for further comment.
