Engraving, platemark 290 x 175mm (11½ x 7") large margins.
General Amherst standing outside a British fort, gesturing towards a basket at right in offering to begging figures at left, a Native American soldier standing behind at right. In fact Amherst's career in North America and Canada was clouded by failures in relations with native Americans. Illustration to Camden's 'History of England' (this plate first published by J. Stratford in 1811), engraved after a design by Robert Smirke (1753-1845), painter and illustrator, who specialised in literary themes. Smirke depicted a great number of Shakespearean subjects and provided illustrations for literary and historical texts such as Hume's 'History of England', Dr Johnson's 'Rasselas', the 'Arabian Nights', and 'Don Quixote'.
