Fine, large print. Inigo Jones superb Whitehall Palace architectural design of 1638. From 1530 to 1698, the Royal Palace at Whitehall was the main London royal residence. The palace had over 1,500 rooms and was the largest palace in Europe in 1698 when it was destroyed by fire - except for Inigo Jones designed Banqueting House.

Fine Heritage Editions reproduction from a hand-coloured copperplate engraving by Henrik Hulsbergh after the drawing by Henry Flitcroft of the architectural design of Inigo Jones (1573-1652), originally published in London circa 1715-1767 by Colen Campbell. Known as "the father of classical English architecture", Inigo Jones believed that strict mathematical proportion should control plan, elevation, and every other detail of construction.

From 1605 Inigo Jones was theatrical designer and architect for the royal courts of James I and Charles II. In 1615 he was appointed royal surveyor general. During two trips to Italy, he had studied Palladian style of architecture in northern Italy.
