Photogravure. 215 x 115mm, 8½ x 4½".
Thomas Kirgate worked for Horace Walpole at the Strawberry Hill Press from 1765, and was regarded by his employer as the only honest printer he ever had. However for several months after Walpole's death in 1797, Kirgate remained at work, re-printing earlier works such as 'Gray's Odes' and selling them as original.
