- Curator's comments
- According to a pencil annotation, by Henry M Hake, dated 1926, in the departmental copy of Le Blanc, this is probably an anonymous copy of O'Donoghue 24 (see no. 51b) which was published as the Frontispiece to the 1804 edition of 'Ascanius, or the Young Pretender'.
This impression is annotated on backing sheet: 'Probably reworked state of the plate represented in Strange's works [or it might be a copy]'.
Handwritten note about the portrait pasted below print. Newspaper cutting from March 1871 about a lecture 'James Ballantine on "Bonnie Prince Charlie" ' at the Greenock Philosophical Institute pasted below. This impression was said (according to the register) to have been presented by the Young Pretender to Mr Stewart of Innerhadden.
