Design for a titlepage with Time, Minerva, Poetry and Music; standing around a circular plinth, Time kneeling at l foreground, an hourglass beside him, an angel above looking down on them Red chalk, with lines indented. Turner 1999 Accompanied by Minerva and Time, the muse of history is shown pointing to an inscription on a pedestal, which gives the title and author of the book. A coat of arms, presumably those of Goutoulas, with two stars and a lamb appears in the upper left corner of the print, just above the trumpet held by Fame, but is only barely discernible in the drawing.
