Printed by Rowney & Forster [c.1820]
Lithograph with hand-colouring, printed area approx. 280 x 205mm (11 x 8") very large margins.
View by the artist Amelia Long, Lady Farnborough (1772-1837) from Bromley Hill House, the property which she and her husband Charles Long (1761-1838) purchased in 1801. They enlarged the original 1760s house to their own designs and improved the much-admired garden which, by 1809, had two picturesque walks, each a mile long. Amelia Long exhibited four views taken in the grounds of Bromley Hill at the Royal Academy between 1811 and 1817. The gardens have long since disappeared but the house, much altered, survives as the Bromley Court Hotel on Bromley Hill.

Hulett Sculp.
Engraving, sheet 250 x 170mm (9¾ x 6¾"). Laid in album sheet.
Representation of the allied occupation of Port St Mary, which preceded the battle of Cadiz in 1702 during the War of the Spanish Succession. After the allies landed, they marched on Rota and then entered the town of Port St Mary, and looted the town's unguarded warehouses, convents and churches (as shown here). This conduct both caused Prince George to send home a report despairing of the behaviour, and ended any chance of the local population supporting the allies. The advance lost momentum thereafter, and the allies' attempt to capture Cadiz ended in abject failure. Plate to a volume on events during the reign of Queen Anne.
