The famous head and shoulders portrait of William Camden from Edmund Gibson's edition of the "Britannia" engraved by R.White. Camden is shown in his herald's clothes, while his own heraldry appears beneath the portrait. As Clarenceux King of Arms Camden travelled widely to check that heraldry was being used correctly by all who claimed the right to use it. This helped with his studies, for he was also a renowned English antiquarian and historian. He wrote the first topographical survey of the island of Great Britain and the first detailed historical account of the reign of Elizabeth I of England. Laid down on old paper with repairs to areas of paper weakness.
