No Mean Prospect: Ralph Sheldon's Tapestry Maps

SKU: BOD-1195

Now frail, fragmentary and faded, four woven tapestry maps once formed the intriguing decoration of an out of the way house. Who was the eccentric patron who commissioned this novelty of the 1590s? How and why were the tapestries made? Who were the weavers? What does a closer examination of them add to our knowledge of Elizabethan England?
