[Europeans in a Fantastical Land.]
According to Act of Parliament 1751.
Etching, Plate 211 x 165mm. 8¼ x 10½".
A group of Europeans in a fantastical land, sitting on the grass in the foreground with a tiered dish, fruit, oriental figurines and statuettes, including one of Buddha, one of them to right reading a strip of paper he has drawn with much surprise from a small goblet, two on the left looking up at the sky with astonishment, with mountains in the distance, groups of indigenous people drawn up in the background to left, others chasing a solitary figure towards a broad river flowing on the right, where unicorns and other animals are swimming, with a mermaid on an island and seals and an enormous fish on the shore.
