This picture (and the title page) come from one of the English volumes illustrated on the Antique Prints web site (which includes larger images).

The separate text which accompanies the engravings gives the name of the then owner, his genealogy, a description of the Estate, the contents of the house, including in many cases, an inventory of the principal works of art.
