    Formerly in a bound volume of etchings by Paul Sandby, collected by his descendent and biographer William Sandby and bequeathed by him to the British Museum. The binding was removed in 2012, but the contents (apart from a few mounted prints) have been kept in order in one box. See 1904,0819.429 for further details.

    Sandby produced numerous etchings from the late 1740s onwards, some isolated plates, some possibly intended for sets.
    An impression of this is included in the BM P&D copy of Ryland and Bryer's collection of Sandby's etchings. This is probably a later republished state. See 1850,1014.538.
