This impressive engraving is a wonderful example of Chatelain’s elegant plates. Included in the 1720 edition of Atlas Historique, published by Chatelain in Amsterdam, this large chart is the ninth plate in volume three. This handsome plate is comprised of a series of three large vignettes depicting the meeting of the English clergy. On either side of the central image are two engravings depicting the crests of Oxford and Cambridge adorned with the portraits of celebrated academic figures from English history. The sheet is furnished with a wealth of information on the organization of the church as well as detailed tabular key. This fine print is a wonderful example from Chatelain’s important text. Maps
