Book DescriptionOne hundred superb, full-page, high-quality line art reproductions of William Stukeley's original artwork of Stonehenge from 1732. William Stukeley was the first to chronicle the greatest stone circles in the world: Stonehenge and Avebury. One of the 18th Century's greatest characters, he was friend and colleague to the most gifted men of his time, including Sir Isaac Newton. Stukeley's work * laid the foundations for the modern study of prehistoric monuments * influenced the Druidic Revival * inspired some of William Blake's paintings This is a tribute to an increasingly relevant figure, and is indispensable to anyone interested in the sacred sites and landscapes of the British Isles
