Kip was born in Amsterdam in 1653 and moved to Westminster in about 1688, dying there in 1722. As an engraver he noted for his topographical work, many after Leonard Knyff for their famous work Britannia Illustrata or Nouveau Theatre de la Grande Bretagne, published from 1708. A later edition was published by Joseph Smith from 1724. He also engraved the plates for Atkins' History of Gloucestershire and for Hasted's History of Kent.
