- Inscribed in pencil on verso: "Presented by H. P. Standly Esq Novr 1827". This can be identified with one of the impressions of two plates from drawings by Hogarth in the possession of H P Standly, 'only 12 impressions of each having been taken', given by H P Standly in 1827 and recorded in the 'Book of Donations 1823-1837' under 12 January 1828. The other is Z,1.6. In his report to the Trustees dated 11 January 1828, J T Smith stated that 'only twelve impressions were taken off, and in order to render them curious and valuable to their possessors, the copper plates in the presence of four persons were entirely destroyed'.
