Frontis etched dedication page to the folio 'Eight Views of Windsor Great Park' by Thomas Sandby (1723 - 1798). Plate 340 x 330mm, 13˝ x 13". Some small nicks and tears around the edges. Large margins.
The engravings in the folio are likely to date from 1754-5 and to have been available by private subscription. They were reissued by Boydell in 1772. On the evidence of surviving compositional studies it may be deduced that Paul Sandby (1725 - 1809) was responsible for the figures, and Thomas for the panoramic landscapes.
