D53/23 Studies and Designs done in Rome in the Year 1752, p. 23, Victoria & Albert Museum, London
From a set of small soft-ground etchings by Whessell at the British Museum ( E60/1- E60/44). These were made after Wilson's drawings in the sketchbook of the same title at the Victoria & Albert Museum (D53-D53/81). The present one is taken from p. 23 (D53/23). In 1811 the etchings were published by the Oxford-based publisher, Robert Archer in more than one format - this one with an introduction and list of subscribers.
All plates in good condition on thick laid paper, with occasional staining only. Blue on edges.
