The London Quaker.
P Tempest, ex: Cum privilegio. [London, n.d., c.1688.]
Copper engraving, laid paper, 245 x 160mm, 9¾ x 6¼". A good, clean impression.
A young Quaker girl standing with hands clasped at waist, a cloak under her left arm, wearing plain clothes with frilled sleeves and a headscarf. This is almost certainly the likeness of a real person; a note on an impression in the BM identifies the woman as Racheal of Covent Garden. After Marcellus Laroon (1648/1649 or 1653 - 1702), from the series 'The Cryes of the City of London Drawne after the Life' published by Pierce Tempest (1653 - 1717).
