This fine engraving is a view of Nonsuch Palace, with carriages and deer hunting, a panel of female costume figures below. Latin text verso, dated in the plate 1582.
The scene records the arrival of Elizabeth I at Nonsuch Palace during the short period it was not in royal ownership, then belonging to the Earl of Arundel. It is one of only 3 known images of the palace built by Henry VIII near Epsom, in Surrey, in 1538, but demolished only 150 years later. It was a totally new building, rather than an adaptation of an existing one, incorporating some of the first Renaissance architecture in England, including elaborate stucco panels visible in this plate. Apart from fragments in museums, no other trace remains.

TRANSLATION OF COMMENTARY BY BRAUN AS SEEN ON VERSO : "The royal palace in England Nonsuch, ten miles away from London, was magnificently built by Henry VIII. [...] The construction of this complex is so astonishing that it deserves its name Nonsuch, i.e. "none the like". [...] Many excellent craftsmen, master builders, stonecutters and sculptors, Italians, French, Dutch and English, were employed here at the King's expense. In their decoration of the palace, which is adorned inside and out with handsome sculptures, these craftsmen have created a particular work of art that not just equals the antiquities of Rome, but in part even surpasses them." (Taschen) ¤
