~ Claude Chimérique, c. 1780, aka Patrick Eyres (including 2 maps). Studley Royal as a metaphor of imperial conquest during the Seven Years War. An affectionate and tongue-in-cheek pastiche of 18C garden tours, collaged from the accounts of Studley by Arthur Young and William Gilpin, to float a speculative iconography!
