- The album O,8 was the second of the 13 volumes of British portraits that were assembled by Thomas Philipe between 1808 and 1810. It continues the reign of Queen Elizabeth, with the remaining classes (gentry, clergy, lawyers, military, and artists, plus a few foreign royalty), and then begins the reign of James I with portraits of James himself and Anne of Denmark (only). The reign continues in P,1.
The vast majority of the prints in the album come from Cracherode; a few only come from Sloane. For a general comment on the series see O,7.1.
