recent arrival
An amusing and interesting plate from Pennants "London .." illustrating the monument above Speed's tomb in the Chancel of St Giles's Church, Cripplegate, London. This distinctive image shows the great mapmaker, seemingly looking out but with lifeless gaze, one hand on a skull, the other on a book - the Bible, or the "Theatre ..."? Latin text describes his life and, below the image, a glowing obituary, in English provides further details. The monument itself survived the Blitz of 1940, although much of the church in the Barbican, London, was damaged.
