Footnotes

  • One of 100 sets on india, pulled from the original plates in 1874. First commissioned and paid for in 1826 by John Linnell, his son wrote that "My father considered the plates at the last [1874] were as good as they ever were, for the work being cut by a graver, and not etched, it is durable - and is not worn by the printing as is the case with an etching" (Bentley Books, p.523)
