The Town of Stirling.
London, Published by Smith, Elder & Co. 65 Cornhill, 1824.
Coloured aquatint, very fine 1st issue, 510 x 665mm. 20 x 26¼". Small hole in inscription area filled, repairs to edges.
A distant view of the former ancient burgh Stirling, from the "Views in Scotland" series. 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.
