- Acquisition notes
- The four aquatints, U,10.86 to 89, are the last four prints in the album. They were only published in 1899, and so cannot come from Sloane or Cracherode, and none of them has any marking on the verso to reveal the provenance. But there are strong reasons to think that F C Lewis made a gift of his own work to the BM in 1809, and these four prints (one being by his brother) were part of that gift. They were incorporated by Philipe into the Claude album which he was at that moment assembling from the earlier collections.
