Johannes "Jan" Kip (1652 or 53 - 1722) was a Dutch draftsman, engraver and print dealer. Together with Leonard Knyff, he made a speciality of engraved views of English country houses and towns. Kip learned his trade under Stopendaal from 1668 to 1670. His own work began to appear in 1672. After producing works for the court of William ofOrange in Amsterdam, Kip relocated to London (following King William III and Queen Mary II in the 'Glorious Revolution' of 1688.) He then travelled around England documenting notable estates. to found a successful printselling business. He worked as an illustrator for other London publishers as well as his own. He is perhaps best known for the folio illustrations he produced for the 1708 Britannia Illustrata, 1708 and 65 plates he engraved for Sir Robert Atkyns' 1712 The Ancient and Present State of Glostershire,  and for Le Nouveau Théâtre de la Grande Bretagne, 1715.
