Belton in Lincolnshire, the Seat of Sr. John Brownlow.
A fine front elevation of Belton House, still standing today and run by the National Trust, and home of the Brownlow family until 1984. The engraving comes from Colen Campbell’s Vitruvius Britannicus or, “The British Architect. Containing the Geometrical Plans of the most Considerable Gardens and Plantations; also the Plans, Elevations, and Sections of the most Regular Buildings… With Large Views, in Perspective, of the most Remarkable Edifices in Great Britain.” Campbell, chief architect of the Prince of Wales, produced this extraordinary work for a large number of prestigious subscribers, including King George. Engraved by H. Hulsbergh.
