Footnotes

  • Tatham spent two years working on the 102 plates for Etchings, illustrating the best examples from the collection of his patron Frederick Howard, fifth earl of Carlisle. The work exerted an immediate influence on the arbiters of neo-classical taste, with almost a third of the 210 subscribers being architects and craftsmen.

    Provenance: Charles Longuet-Higgins (1806-1885), bookplate. He was resident of Turvey, Bedfordshire, where he "restored the church (1852–4) and erected more than sixty comfortable cottages" (ODNB).
