The Rose - mislabeled The Globe - from Visscher's View of London 1616
In Shakespearean Playhouses, by Joseph Quincy Adams, this image is identified as the first Globe Theatre and is taken from Visscher's View of London published in 1616, but representing the city as it was several years earlier. In Shapiro, I. A. (1948). The Bankside Theatres: early engravings. Shakespeare Survey (Cambridge, England: Cambridge University Press) 1: 31. "…Visscher misnames it [sc. The Rose] the Globe and omits the latter altogether."
