The Vicar of Bond Street.
Hand coloured etching, 170 x 125mm. 6¾ x 5". Fine. Slightly stained; glued to album page.
A plainly dressed man with crudely etched legs walks in profile to the right. 'The Rev. Mr. Newman, Vicar of Bond Street ... in the diocese of John Stockdale, Bishop of Piccadilly' is mentioned in a note to 1. 79 of the verse satire, 'Imperial Epistle to Kien Long ...' 1795, by T. J. Mathias. This would seem to imply a pamphleteer.
