From a set of soft-ground etchings by Whessell at the National Mueum, Wales. 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. 12 (D53/12). In 1811 the etchings were published by the Oxford-based publisher, Robert Archer in more than one format.
