- Curator's comments
- This is a copy of a plate engraved by John Hassell after John Masey Wright in 1813 (see 1917,1208.3419 for original print).
The unknown draughtsman mentioned in the inscription ('Clement Inv.') is the result of the copyist mistaking the publication address lettered on the original ('11 Clements Inn') for an artist's name.
