A SERIES OF EIGHT VIEWS ILLUSTRATIVE OF THE ENTERPRISE OF DRAKE THE DOVER MERCHANT & HIS 12 COMPANIONS IN THEIR SUCCESSFUL SURPRISE OF THE CASTLE ON THE NIGHT OF THE 1ST OF AUGUST 1642. PAINTED BY W. BURGESS. ~ Printed by McLean & Co., 70 St. Martin?s Lane, London and published by W. Burgess, Castle Street, Dover, August 1st. 1847 ~ Large folio album, 14.5 x 21.5 inch es, comprising 8 large tinted lithographic plates. Original pale green heavy paper wrappers with lithographed title and description of contents to front. Preserved in a custom-made drop-back box. With label to upper board, and spine. At the outbreak of the Civil War in 1642, the town of Dover sided with Parliament, while the castle was garrisoned by Royalists. On the 20th of August that year, a party of townspeople led by a merchant, variously referred to as Drake, Dawes or Daux, surprised the tiny garrison of 20 and captured the castle, with hardly a shot fired. The Castle remained in Parliament?s hands until the restoration. The views are as follows: 1. The Old Entrance of Dover Castle. 2. Ancient Gateway and Guard Room. 3. Great Hall, Governor?s Apartment. 4. [Inner Walls] Drake and his Companions Surprising the Garrison on the Night of the 1st of August 1642. 5. Marshall Tower - Troops from Canterbury. 6. Old Road - Siege by the Royalists. 7. [North East Walls] North East Side. Albrincis, or Averanches Tower. 8. From the Ramparts - Retreat of the Royalists. We have sold a number of individual plates over the years but have never seen this as a complete item. ~ £2000.00 ~ KENT DOVER ~ KENT
