London, Published by Smith, Elder & Co. 65 Cornhill, 1825.
Coloured aquatint, 510 x 665mm. 20 x 26¼". Framed in fine rosewood frame. Vertical crease at centre, some paper toning.
Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders, from the "Views in Scotland" series. On the centre are the ruins of Jedburgh Abbey, founded by the Augustines in 1138; above the town on the right is Jedburgh Castle Jail, built in the early 19th century on the site of the medieval castle Although it cannot be proved it is believed that 'I. Clark" is the Scottish painter John Heaviside Clark, famed as 'Waterloo Clark' for his early sketches of the Battle. He was also skilled in aquatinting, and certainly none of this series has a named engraver.
Abbey No: 489.
