The King's House at Greenwich, built by Humphrey Duke of Gloucester Anno 1487 and pull'd down in the Year 1661
This appears to be either a copy of the 1767 Basire print (PAH3294) omitting the shipping, or of the original drawing in the Gough Collection of the Bodleian (assuming that has no shipping). The title information in the cartouche is wrong inasmuch as Placentia was rebuilt, or at least extended, from Humphrey of Gloucester's much smaller manor house of Bellacourt by Edward VI and his successors after Humphrey's death in 1447, and totally rebuilt by Henry VII around 1500.
