NOTES: This early drawing of ca.1616-1618 is here tentatively related to the Queen's House, for parts of its plan (the 40ft cube hall adjacent to a circular staircase) bear a remarkable resemblance to these parts of the house. If this is a correct ascription (and this is by no means certain) it would have been projected prior to the decision to build the house across the public road. The plan is not dissimilar to that of the Villa Aldobrandini. This drawing is part of the Burlington-Devonshire Collection.
