The seaport of Hull was an important 17th century English bulwark against naval attack or incursions of Scottish armies. After Hull turned against Charles I in 1640, the King twice (without success) beseiged the town in 1642, the likely year of issue of the present print. Cf. Parry.

Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677) set the standard of artistic and technical achievement that many later engravers attempted to emulate. In every area Hollar's work stands out as a source of information on common life in 17th century Europe. It ranges from topography and landscapes, to depictions of local dress from a variety of regions. Born in Prague, he lived and worked in London, where his views of the city form an invaluable record of its appearance before the Great Fire of 1666.
