    Group of Twenty 1654 Copperplate Illustrations Depicting Medieval Subjects. 7.75 inches x 11.25 inches. These incredible engravings, most engraved by Robert Vaughan, are extracted from Nicholas Upton's Di Studio Militaria, London: R. Norton, 1654.

    More Information: Included is an illustration of Sir William Hotot, an unidentified knight, an unidentified lady of the noble class, and a knight and his valet. The remaining illustrations deal with heraldry devices. Robert Vaughan (1600-1664) was a noted line engraver active in England. He produced portraits, maps, bookplates, and broadsheets.

With the exception of some light scattered foxing these copperplate illustrations are in fine condition.
