- Curator's comments
- The image was previously engraved by Hawkins for Ashburton's History of England, published by W&J Stratford in 1792 (see 1915,0218.14). This appears to be the same plate, partly re-worked and reduced.
See curator's comment for 1872,0113.125 for a list of the reg numbers of P&D holdings of engravings after Benazech from the same publication.
See 1873,0510.1179 for another impression.
