The Keep of Ragland Castle, Monmouthshire. Drawn by H. Gastineau. Engraved by H. Adlard.

The siege and capture of Ragland Castle, by Fairfax, in August, 1646, A. D., when the library, containing a great treasure of MSS., was destroyed, has been the subject of much lamentation; and the opprobrium of the deed has been laid (as is usual) upon Oliver Cromwell, who was not in the least concerned in it. (p. 577)

There is a more recent picture of Raglan Castle (note different spelling) in Oman’s book on Castles.

Lorry’s Deviant Art Gallery has several pictures of Raglan Castle.
