This object is part of Schaaf no. 565

Copy of a lithograph, "Door of the Cathedral of Burgos", Spain

Location: Spain

From a portfolio of lithographs of Spanish architectural views, "España artística y monumental vistas y descripción de los sitios y monumentos más notables de España", published in 1865.

This lithograph shows a view of what was the Cloister of the College of St. Gregorio in Valladolid (now the Museo Nacional de Escultura, National Museum of Sculpture, Spain).

Presumably Talbot owned, or had access to a portfolio which would have contained an original lithograph which he copied photographically. A version of an original lithograph can be seen here.
