[Thomas Dudley after Francis Barlow, 1678/9]
Etching, platemark approx. 240 x 165mm (9½ x 6½").
One of thirty-two illustrations to the second (1687) edition of Francis Barlow's Aesop, showing scenes from the life of the Greek storyteller. All of the plates were designed by Barlow but only five were etched by him. The rest, including this one, were etched by Thomas Dudley (1678-9, fl.). Little is known of Dudley- he signed himself as a student of Wenceslaus Hollar in one print and while he etched some portraits, his prints after Barlow are his most important work. In 1679 he went to Lisbon, where he is known to have made further prints, and he is not supposed to have returned to England thereafter.

Despite Ryland's name as engraver this plate is not all his work, the result of him being executed for forging bills of exchange in 1783. His widow continued his business, and had Bartolozzi finish this plate.
